About the Gateway Cup
This year marks the 21st year that the top amateur and professional cyclists from around the United States will converge on St. Louis for four days of cycling over Labor Day Weekend in the Gateway Cup. The Gateway Cup takes place in the heart of four unique St. Louis neighborhoods – Lafayette Square, St. Louis Hills – Francis Park, the Italian Hill Neighborhood and historic Benton Park. Within each of these host communities the race course is defined by an approximately one mile lap known as a criterium. The Gateway Cup features five – six successive races each day based on ability, ranging from beginner to pros. Each day is highlighted by the feature event, the men’s Pro-Am race. In this race, 150 of the nation’s top cyclists compete.
