The 2nd Annual Historic Riverton Criterium (HRC) is on! All the action will be on Sunday, June 10th in beautiful Riverton, NJ. If you were there last year, you know how good it was. The stakes were high, the level of competition was even higher, and to be honest, we couldn’t have asked for a better day of racing. This year’s race will be even bigger with more racers, more sponsors, more prizes, more fun, more better!
If you want to mix it up and try to make the podium, head over to the race registration page on BikeReg. All the pertinent info is there, but to sum it up, the first race will be the Cat 4s at 1:00pm, followed by a kids race, the Masters 35+, an older kids race, and finishing up the day with the CAT 1/2/3 race. Even if you don’t win, take comfort in knowing that proceeds from the race go to support the Riverton Free Library.
One of the great additions for the HRC 2012 will be the crew from SRAM Neutral Race Support. SRAM NRS will be there to aid the racers with top notch technical expertise and equipment, so if something goes wrong, the riders will have the best in the country helping to get them back in the race. The SRAM NRS crew is super nice, so even if you’re not racing, just stop by and say hi.
Another new feature the HRC 2012 will be the Specialized Test the Best demo truck. If you’re looking for your next bike and you want to see just how good a Specialized ride can be, bring your gear and ID and have some fun. Check out the Test the Best Road East page for more info or just put it in on your calendar.
If you just want a great excuse to get out of the city and enjoy the festivities, “like” the Historic Riverton Criterium on Facebook, then mark your calendar and get ready.
We’ll provide more updates and info as they come, but in the mean time, check out the links and stop by the shop.
