The organisers have an obligation to ensure that the Selangor Brompto Criterium is safe as possible without diminishing the nature of the race. The nature of the race is serious and there is a risk of serious injury, damage to properties or death whilst participating in the event.

The Selangor Brompton Criterium follows the tradition of criterium racing where riders will race in a closed circuit involving a number of laps in a technical and fast paced manner. The race is for the beginner and advanced riders who wish to challenge themselves in the racing culture of cycling.

For this year, The Selangor Brompton Criterium are taking measures to introduce a new format in our races which is – the bikeability grading system, eliminating the age format category. Our intention is to promote a fair level of competition for riders to compete with their peers and at the same time encouraging more new riders to take part in races.
