MOUNT MORRIS, NY - American Rock Salt is proud to announce that for the 4th year it will be the title sponsor of the The Rock Criterium and Gran Fondo hosted by the Livingston Cycling Club on July 22 - 23.
The Rock is a two-day event that brings together nearly 300 athletes from all over the East Coast and Canada for family-friendly weekend of racing, riding and running.
Day 1: The Criterium
On the first day of the event, hundreds of racers gather in the quiet, historic village of Mount Morris to race around a residential neighborhood for prizes, cash, glory, free socks, and the ever-coveted Rock Trophy - a handmade trophy constructed from real American Rock Salt.
“The crit races are electrifying to watch,” said Joe Bucci, Jr. of American Rock Salt. “It has been especially fun to cheer on the local riders. The speed of the bikes and determination of the riders is amazing! The running race is also a lot of fun. It was especially great to see the number of kids that participated in the run last year. My son, daughter and their friends really enjoyed it and are looking forward to it again this summer!
In addition to 15 bike-race fields that host kids and adults of all ages and abilities, The Rock also offers a running race where athletes run two laps of the 1-mile course for cash and prizes of their own as well as their own Rock Trophy.
Day 2: The Gran Fondo
The Rock Gran Fondo is one of the toughest rides in the country. The event offers three distance options to accommodate riders of all abilities, the grand daddy of which is more than 100 miles and takes riders up some of the longest, steepest hills in the Finger Lakes Region.
