Crit Racing

If you’ve ever been to the Saint Francis Tulsa Tough, you know what this is all about. Huge crowds, great courses and a payout worth laying it all out there.  

3 Days
3 Intense Races



Saint Francis Tulsa Tough is ready for another year of exciting criterium racing. Our crits put Tulsa on the map as a sure stop for upper echelon cycling teams. We host crits in three different venues in the streets of Downtown Tulsa and along the Arkansas River. And the prize money is the largest purse in the nation.

Avid racers will be happy to know that USA Cycling selected Saint Francis Tulsa Tough men’s and women’s criteriums to be on the National Criterium Calendar as a tier one event.  We’re pretty much the biggest, baddest weekend on your race calendar.
