Upcoming: 54th Nevada City Classic

Thats right, fifty-four years. That is older than me and means that they have earned that "Classic" part in their name. It is definitely one to carve a weekend out of your schedule to watch from the street-side, or maybe someone's front yard. If many years in the future, you can tell a tale about how you actually did the race one year, well, so much the better.

To add to the race's significance this year, the NCC is the second half of a two race omnium - the Classic will be run on Sunday 15 June (Fathers Day), while down the mountain, the Folsom Historic Criterium will be run the day before. With a combined purse of $23,000 I think we can expect a collection of NorCal's best to be there. Anyone from the southern part of the state planning to challenge?
