Tom Jehlicka Criterium

The Tom Jehlicka Criterium  in its current form has been held since 2007. However, a race on its circuit has been held on and off for about 20 years. The race has been called Easter Loops and it has been a stage in the Cobourg Cycling Club’s famous stage race called the Northumberland Challenge.

In its current incarnation, the TJ Crit is an open event and classified as a citizen’s race through the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA). This type of class of race allows first time racers to take part in an event to improve their skills and abilities. Tom’s greatest attribute as an athlete was his ability to share his knowledge and experience with others. This made him a marvelous teacher. In his memory, the CCC is offering this crit for racers to learn and begin gathering their own experiences.
