This weekend is your chance to watch some of the best amateur cycling to come to our area at West Point. The United States Military Academy is hosting their 26th Annual Army Spring Classic April 4th and 5th. On Saturday there will be a Team Time Trail and Circuit Race at Camp Buckner. Sunday will be a Individual Hill Climb and Criterium will be at West Point.
The racing starts Saturday with a Team Time Trial which is followed by a 2 mile circuit race both held at Camp Buckner off Rt 293 beginning at 09:30am.
Sunday will be on the main grounds at West Point and include a very difficult Individual Hill Climb at 7:45 with a fast criterium around Shea Stadium at 10:00am.
I heard from Jamieson Provan, a member of the Rockland Bicycling Club and neighbor of West Point in Fort Montgomery who said he plans on watching some of the racing this weekend and said,”There are some killer climbs right there for the ITT on Sunday.” It is 4.2k long with a 7.6 percent incline. He also passed on a link for the profile. http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-states/ny/west-point/1184451872
