Harlem will Rock with world-class sprinters, including Rock Racing's Fred Rodriguez, this Father's Day, Sunday, June 15, at the 35th Annual Skyscraper Cycling Classic at Marcus Garvey Park in New York City.

Former three-time US Professional Champion "Fast Freddy" Rodriguez will be coming off a third place in this past weekend's Commerce Bank Philadelphia International Championship. His good form will be backed up by team-mate Rahsaan Bahati, a former US Elite Criterium Champion and winner of the USA Crits Athens Twilight.

The pair will be challenged by Alejandro Borrajo (Colavita-Sutter Home). The Argentinean fast-man is known for a long and powerful sprint. Australia's Jeff Hopkins, the USA Crits Series Leader and a former World Junior Track Champion, won the Skyscraper in 2000. The Team Inferno sprinting star is still looking for his first big win of the season.

Cuba will be represented in force in Harlem with Yosvany Falcon, a multi-time Cuban National Champion was seventh in the 156-mile race Sunday in Philadelphia. His Toshiba-Santo team-mate, Frank "The Tank" Travieso, a former Cuban National Team member and winner of the inaugural USA Crits Series last year, will provide a second point of attack for the Athens, Georgia-based racing team.
