The Mission Crit has attracted some of the biggest names in the cycling community from around the world for the chance at taking home the bragging rights of San Francisco’s premier fixed gear event. Because it is an unsanctioned event, no points are awarded, bringing out the pure love and devotion of every rider attending. I began shooting the Mission Crit for fun a few years ago and it has grown exponentially every year, in 2018 I was commissioned to be the official photographer.
Mission Crit is an unsanctioned bicycle criterium held on a short, technical circuit in the Mission District of San Francisco. It is the first race of its kind to win approval from the City of San Francisco. The 40-minute race pits elite road racers, track racers, and bicycle messengers against each other on fixed-gear track bicycles in a fast-paced, high-adrenaline competition.
