Jersey Shore Pro Cycling Grand Prix to Debut in May 2006

Threshold Sports and JSR Associates announced that The Pro Cycling Tour Will Add a New Jersey Race Series to be called the Jersey Shore Pro Cycling Grand Prix and will take place during the week of May 15 to 21, 2006. According to the article:

... a week long series of criterium races to be held in four selected New Jersey Shore towns, culminating with a final race in Atlantic City on Saturday, May 20 and a 130-mile �cyclo-sportif� ride from Sandy Hook to Cape May on Sunday, May 21. The Grand Prix Series will be invitational to professional teams and the Cyclo-Sportif ride will be open to recreational cyclists led by selected pros who have competed in the Grand Prix races.

This is a great idea and will draw a lot of cycling fans from the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas. I'd personally love to ride in a cyclo-sportif event that runs from Sandy Hook to Cape May. What a challenge! [ via CyclingNews.com ]
