With several pro teams confirmed to race, the eighth edition of the Mt Holly-Smithville Invitational Grand Prix (July 22) offers some of the strongest midsummer racing for riders throughout the Delaware Valley region and a generous prize purse of $10,000.

The 92 mile circuit race consists of seven laps of a 12 mile circuit through Mt. Holly and the surrounding towns of Easthampton, Westhampton and Springfield followed by three 2.5 mile loops through Mt. Holly's residential and downtown business district. Proceeds from this regional event benefit the H.B. Smith Industrial Village Conservancy, a non-profit volunteer organisation dedicated to improvements, restoration and programmes in Burlington County’s historic Smithville Park.

This year's event is open to UCI professional trade teams and a selection of elite amateur teams, with pro teams including Targetraining, AEG-Toshiba-Jetnetwork, Navigators Insurance, Nerac/Outdoorlighting.com and Priority Health having already confirmed their participation.

Teams wishing to be considered for participation can submit an online application at www.co.burlington.nj.us. The team application/selection process will finish on July 3 and selected teams for the 2006 edition will be announced on July 7.
