Maplewood Criterium Races Through Sunnen, Down Flora
The bike race drew all levels of riders.
Each bike team in the St. Louis area sponsors a race during the year, and on Sunday the team from Mesa Cycles, in Richmond Heights, took its turn.
It was an eighth of a mile course, and each race went for a set time. A motorcycle and rider from Flying Tiger Motorcycles led the way for each race.

Even though the race came together relatively quickly, the neighbors along Flora Avenue were on board with it. Erin Smith said the signs announceing no parking on one side of the stree went up on Wednesday.
Nathan Bookout got down low with his camera, trying for that one cool shot for his wall.
