Harlem Classic Rocks on

Harlem's 35th Annual Skyscraper Classic picked up a new sponsor for its 35th edition on Father's Day, Sunday, June 15th. Rock Racing will back the New York City event, a stop on the USA Crits racing series. Saab has also come on board as the official automobile sponsor. Racers will negotiate its classic 0.75 mile, four corner criterium course.

Rock Racing team owner Michael Ball said it was important for his company to support an event that has annually brought world class cycling talent to one of America's longest-standing African- American cultural and business centers. "The Harlem Cycling Classic fits perfectly with our mission of giving back to the community and making a difference," Ball said. "Rock Racing is proud to be a sponsor of such a great race that has a rich history in the annals of American bicycle racing."
