Mass Ave Crit Redux

  • Michelle Craig
Every year — well, for the last seven, anyway — NUVO hosts the Mass Ave Crit (or MAC, as we lovingly call it.) The Criterium races, winding around a triangle that include two you-gotta-be-kidding-me turns, use Mass Ave's storefronts and the famous "Dancing Lady" as a backdrop for the daylong event. More than 400 riders entertained 5,000 spectators on Aug. 2, 2014.
Here you'll find photos and videos from the event. We'd like to invite you to post your own photos and videos at the Mass Ave Crit Facebook page.
