Cyclocross Races on LI This Weekend

Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup 2006
September 30-October 1


The 4th annual Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup is scheduled to take place Saturday September 30th (Uci C1), and Sunday October 1st (Uci c2) in Southampton NY.
Reigning U.S. National Cyclocross Champion Todd Wells will have his hands full, with northeast cyclo-cross stalwarts Mark McCormack, Tim Johnson, Jesse Anthony, and Jeremy Powers all scheduled to attend the two day UCI sanctioned events. Bolstering the lineup for the men's fields are also Team Rock Lobster, Richard Sachs- RGM watches-Rex Chiu, and Independent Fabrications.

"Hampton Velo Club is also working hard to increase awareness in our town, for cycling and our events", said club secretary Sinead Fitzgibbon. "The owners of Wildthyme Restaurant and Bar generously agreed to show cycling films in the week leading up to the event, and donate a portion of their dinner revenue during that week. They have also arranged a world premier of Sam Smith's new cyclocross movie, scheduled for the evening of Saturday the 30th."

Furthering their tradition of equal prize lists for women racers, Saturday's C1 event will have a ladies prize list of over $4000. The action packed field will see 2006 Canadian National Champion Lynne Bessette take on former national team members Christine Vardaros, Maureen Bruno-Roy, and more top northeast competition in the fight for what may be the largest women's prize list in North American cross history.
