SALISBURY — Speeding was legal Thursday night — but only if you were on two wheels and pedaling.
Salisbury is playing host to the 2011 Giordana Crossroads Classic, with more races coming this weekend.
Thursday’s Downtown Salisbury Criterium was bookended by races in Concord on Wednesday and Statesville today. After that, the competition shifts back to Salisbury.
The first of nine races in the High Rock Road Race starts at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and the final one starts at 3:10 p.m. The City Park Circuit Race begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.
