Supercross Cup coming to Anthony Wayne Recreation Area

  
  


Fabled cyclocross series set to roll November 23 and 24

New York, N.Y. — 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 501c(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.

Those two days are November 23 and 24, 2013.  A good weekend on the 'cross calendar means these are the biggest races in the region for the weekend. Both days, there are categories for every age and class of racer and there will be discounts for those who dare to double-up, 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.  Also good for those in need of UCI points, as the series once again has that on offer, with both days being UCI C2 races. The race also holds a significant spot on the USA Cycling Professional Cyclo-cross Calendar (Pro CX). Registration is already up and accepting entries on bikereg.com (link below).  Elite women will have over $3200 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, part of the more famous Harriman State Park, right next to Bear Mountain, just south of the Bear Mountain Bridge and 20 miles north of the Tappan Zee Bridge, is less than 40 minutes from the George Washington Bridge.  It is literally right off the Palisades Parkway, at Exit 17, close to the New York State Thruway and interstate 287.  As usual, the race will have top-notch food vendors on site, so whether you're racing or spectating, 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, race all weekend.********
