Press Release: Update on Harlem Skyscraper Criterium Women’s Prize List

This past weekend, the Harlem Skyscraper Criterium’s Women’s P123 prize list was reduced at or immediately before the start of their race. Reduction of prize lists in this manner contravenes USAC policy.

Members of the NYSBRA Board collaborated with representatives of USA Cycling, in recommending to organizers of the Harlem Skyscraper Cycling Classic, that this decision be reversed. Richard Cox, Race Director has agreed to do so, and the originally advertised prize list will be paid out in full to the appropriate racers in attendance.

NYSBRA is pleased with the outcome of these discussions, and looks forward to working with USAC and the Harlem Skyscraper Cycling Classic to ensure continued prize list parity and the success and longevity of this beloved New York City event.

NYSBRA official interim statement in Harlem/Prize List Parity

Please read: NYSBRA Statement on Prize List Parity

NYSBRA is aware of the circumstances surrounding this past weekend’s Harlem Skyscraper Criterium, where the race director reduced the Women’s P123 prize list at or immediately before the start of their race. Reduction of prize lists in this manner is in violation of USAC policy, and NYSBRA is currently working with USAC and the race promoter to investigate this issue.

NYSBRA believes prize list parity is a vital component to providing quality bicycle racing in New York State. So in addition, NYSBRA is currently reviewing its existing race permitting guidelines, as well as creating Race Director Best Practices, to enable race directors in NY to have the resources needed to commit to providing high quality and equitable race experiences for our members in a sustainable manner.
