Pennsylvania to Host New Rock-N-Road Gravel Series
15 Aug, 2019
g4 Productions will launch a new gravel series cycling event on November 3, 2019. The Rock-N-Road Gravel Series presented by Piscitello Law will start and finish at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Trexlertown, PA with a Paris-Roubaix-style finish on the Velodrome.
Former professional cyclist Andrea Tafi won Paris-Roubaix in 1999 and will be guest riding the Rock-N-Road event. “As a professional, I raced many times in the U.S. It was always a good experience,” said Tafi. “I still have many U.S. fans and riders who visit my Borghetto in Tuscany. I am really looking forward to the Rock-N-Road ride and to recreate my Paris-Roubaix win with the finish on the velodrome!”
In addition to Andrea Tafi, current Master’s U.S. National and World Cyclocross Champion Laura Van Gilder, and 3x Olympian Bobby Lea will be lining up at the velodrome for the 100km ride. There will be a 50km option as well.
Registration opens on Friday, June 7, 2019. $65 early bird pricing is in effect until July 31st and a VIP package for $200 is available for only fifty participants. The VIP experience includes an event jersey, early packet pick-up, and a 25-mile pre-ride with Andrea Tafi followed by a light lunch the day before the event. A portion of all of the registration fees will be donated to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling League(PICL), one of 31 independent leagues that operate around the country within the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).
“We’re excited to be partnering with g4 Productions and the Rock-N-Road Gravel Series,” said Mike Kuhn, Executive Director of the PICL. “This exciting new ride will help expand our mission of getting more kids on bikes in the Lehigh Valley and throughout all of Pennsylvania.”
