The THF Realty Gateway Cup expands into new territory this year for its fourth and final race — the exotic Benton Park neighborhood hosts the first-ever Benton Park Classic Criterium
. The 1.77-mile technical course begins and ends at Benton Park (Arsenal Street and Jefferson Avenue; www.gatewaycup.com
), sending the two-wheeled warriors racing past beloved landmarks such as the A-B mothership, the Venice Café and Gus' Pretzels. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and races start at 10 a.m. Admission is free for spectators, and at 2 p.m. kids can race Big Wheels for a $5 donation.
