The 39th annual Harlem Skyscraper Cycling Classic presented by Rockstar Games, the only professional cycling race in New York City, will return on Father's Day, June 17, 2012, to Marcus Garvey Park (121st Street and Fifth Avenue). The landmark event marks a unique opportunity for professional, amateur, and child cyclists to converge on the streets of Harlem in a day-long celebration filled with competitive, high-speed racing; music, food; and family entertainment. The race will be televised live on NYC Life TV (Channel 25 on Comcast, RCN, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOs and over the air, and Channel 22 on Cablevision) in New York City, and streamed live online.
Rockstar Games is sponsoring the event for the third consecutive year, firmly establishing itself as the preeminent supporter of professional and local cyclists, and cycling enthusiasts. Members of Rockstar Games will be on-hand with Rockstar-branded merchandise near the start and finish lines.
“We’re pleased to once again be a part of the Harlem Cycling Classic,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Cycling is a passion and way-of-life for so many of us at Rockstar. It’s an honor to support not only the singular professional cycling event in New York City, but also a day filled with great races and entertainment.”
