The Brooksville Cycling Classic returns for the forth year and promises to once again deliver an amazing set of late season racing. On Saturday, enjoy one of the only downtown health fairs and festivals in the state that coincide with a bike race. This "Get Healthy" Sponsored event attracts vendors from across the health food arena along with those from the health care arena. The days criterium racing is right inline with what you've come to expect from TopView Sports. Challenging courses and great production. The six corner course features a four block long semi climb along the brick streets of the Oak lined Brooksville Ave. A quick turn at the top on the hill puts you back in front of the finish line before plunging back to the bottom of the course. Truly this is one of the best courses in the state. We are honored to race on such great streets and you should want to be part of the action.
On Sunday at the Ice Cream Hill Road Race, riders are treated to a bit of the Florida hills. This course features the Pasco County famous Ice Cream hill which riders will encounter several times. But to keep it fair for the non-climbers the sprint finish comes at the end of a nice quick, straight descent for the last kilometer. Winners on this course have been pure sprinters and climbers so it really is anyone's race.
The proceeds from the event will be split between the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and our hosts for the Sunday Road Race the Neff Lake ARC facility. This is the last and final tune up before the State Road Race which will be the following week in Clermont.
Once again Clermont and Ferndale will play host to the State Road Race Championships of Cycling. We will use the same format as in years past that allows every rider the chance to race each day. On Saturday we will race an Age Graded Day and Sunday will be the Category Day. This is an FRS event and there will be over 25 state Champion jerseys awarded. It will be a great way to finish the 2013 season and the last chance to earn a state title. Come join the fun and race!!
