New York, NY— In his ongoing mission to expand cyclocross opportunities for New York-Metro area bike racers and grow the local racing scene, promoter Myles Romanow, along with the Kissena Cycling Club and Hampton Velo Club, a 501(c)(3) organization, and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, are setting up two days of fabulous racing at the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area in New York’s Harriman State Park on November 23rd and 24th, 2013.
A good weekend on the ‘cross calendar means these are the biggest races in the region for the weekend. On both days, there are categories for every age and class of racer and there will be discounts for those who dare to double-up and do two races in a day, triple-up and possibly even quadruple-up. There will be a $55 day pass for those who want the insanity of doing multiple races on a single day.
Both days are UCI C2 races and good for those in need of UCI points. Registration is already up and accepting entries on bikereg.com. Elite Women will have over $3200 in prizes to battle for, while Elite Men will have over $4,000 up for grabs. Prize money means participation, so people who want to see the sport done-up by the best in the game will be treated two days of great shows.
Anthony Wayne Recreation Area, less than 40 minutes from the George Washington Bridge and 20 miles north of the Tappan Zee Bridge is part of the more famous Harriman State Park, right next to Bear Mountain. It’s literally right off the Palisades Parkway at Exit 17. As usual, the race will have top-notch food vendors on site, so whether you’re racing, a spectator, or both, you’ve got your eats handy.
Very much a course wizard, Romanow likes varied courses that call on a racer to be strong, smart, and a good bike handler. He and his team of able volunteers set up great courses that are safe, fun, and a great challenge.
Come one, come all. Race once, twice, or race all weekend. More information is available at Supercrosscup.com.
