The Vittoria Northeast Cyclocross Series returns to Rockland County Community College in one month
Suffern, NY, October 18, 2017 - After a successful debut year in a new location, Supercross returns to the “World Cup-style” venue that featured gigantic rolling hills, tricky off-cambers and clenching descents that tested even the most steely-nerved cross racers.
“Our second year at this venue has us really excited!” says race promoter Myles Romanow. “We will make a few revisions to the course and make use of the incredible amenities afforded to us by our hosts, Rockland Community College. With hot showers, changing rooms, plentiful parking, delicious food trucks, the Family Fun Zone, there really are so many reasons to say “I HEART NY” and make the trip to Supercross.”
Supercross starts on November 18th and is the third stop on the country’s longest-running professional cyclocross race series.
