The 33rd Annual Skyscraper Harlem Criterium will take place this June 18 in New York, USA. A very fast 0.8 mile square course around Marcus GarveyPark, the race has been a Father’s Day cycling tradition since 1973. Recent winners include Jeff Hopkins and Jonas Carney among the men and Joanne Kiesanowski and Laura Van Gilder among the women.
Last year’s winner Roselvert 'Pollo' Marte of the G.S. Mengoni team returns to defend his 2005 title at the competition, which this year also serves as the New York State Criterium Championship. All riders are welcome and may register at www.bikereg.com or follow the old Harlem tradition and just show up to race.
