I just wanted to report on this event that happened in Harlem, last Sunday. It was the 35th annual Skyscrapper Criterium, a day of pro racing in NYC where they have a closed course and have different categories of racing.
But it wasn’t just for the spandex crowd, Bike messengers got a chance to compete as well bringing their unique style of competition and giving audiences a view at “alleycat racing.”
Here is an article in Time magazine online.
