4th Cox Charities Cycling Classic

Sunday, June 12 will see some of the USA's best professional cyclists visit Station Park in downtown Providence, Rhode Island, for the 4th annual Cox Charities Cycling Classic. Held on a 1 mile, seven corner criterium course in the heart of the city and across from the Rhode Island State House, this year's event will see the pro men's field competing for a $10,000 purse. Held one week after the Wachovia US Professional Championships in Philadelphia, the event offers riders a chance to stay on the East Coast and make the short trip to New England to take advantage of their form and compete for a sizable prize list.

There will be plenty of side activities organised in Station Park on the day as well, with food vendors and exhibitors including HBO, Showtime, WWE, ESPN, NBC Universal, Discovery, and IFC. Rhode Island Rock Gym will once again provide a rock wall for amateur climbers and Scooby Doo will appear between 11:00am and 3:00pm. Mike Siedley, the US champion trials rider in mountain bike stunt riding will be on hand to demonstrate some of his stunts and trick riding. In addition, the Narragansett Wheelmen, a cycling group from Rhode Island, will be on hand with a display of antique bicycles.
