Central Park Classic Race Recap

Central Park Classic Race Recap

A full weekend of racing started on Saturday with an early 5:30 race start for the Century Road Club Association (CRCA) Central Park Classic presented by Accelerade and 2nd Surge that featured brutally humid conditions. After some tough racing Team Sixcycle-RK&O took charge of the race on the final lap, chasing down a dangerous break of four riders and scoring a sixth place finish in the field sprint.

Always looking for an opportunity to race, Team Sixcycle-RK&O was back in action on Sunday for the CRCA Accelerade Club Series where the fields were much smaller than normal due to the previous day’s racing (not to mention the early start time).  The team brought out the camera for Sunday’s race and 300+ pictures are posted in two separate albums on our Facebook page. Sunday CRCA Accelerade Club Series pictures: Facebook Part 1 and Facebook Part 2
