The 2nd annual Hammerfest fueled by BOLT24 is coming to Birmingham on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, March 14-15, 2020. USA CRITS D1 professional cycling teams from all over the US will be racing through the streets of Pepper Place in downtown Birmingham. This exciting, fast-paced criterium racing is not just for the pros. Amateurs and juniors will be tackling the same course and putting their skills to the test.
There’s also an opportunity for Hammerfest guests to give back to the Ronald McDonald House! Guests on site and viewing the livestream will have the opportunity to contribute to the Give Back Prime, with 50% of those proceeds benefiting the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham. A prime is an intermediate sprint during a larger bicycle race where riders can score points or prizes. Here’s how you can give:

- Watch for text-to-give options at the event site and on the live broadcast at USACRITS.com and USACRITS.tv
This special weekend includes something for all ages with a Kids Zone, Community Hour, Lil’ Shamrock fun ride where youngsters can show their St. Patrick’s Day spirit and decorate their bicycles or tricycles, a dog parade, best-dressed contests for prizes, food trucks and more.
