A criterium is an 800m to 1.6km closed circuit race, with riders competing for line honours after a set amount of time and/or laps. Riders negotiate corners and bends at speed while on the rivet, jostling for the best spot in the bunch to breakaway or launch a sprint finish.

Supported by Penrith Cycling Club, the Redline Criterium is open to all AusCycling members across 4 grades of racing.
