45th Nevada City Classic

US professional teams including Health Net-Maxxis, Colavita-Sutter Home, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada, Webcor Builders, and McGuire-Langdale will line up June 19 in Nevada City for the 45th rNevada City Classic, claimed by the organisers to be the west coast's oldest race. The 40-lap criterium incorporates 300ft of climbing on each of its 1.1 mile loops.

"The Nevada City Classic is the quintessential American criterium race," says former national champion Kurt Stockton, operations manager for Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada and a resident of neighboring Smartville. "It's a very difficult course and there's no way to fake it if you're not in peak form. Nevada City is also a great town, and I'm proud to be part of the community that supports this event."
