King of New York Mini-jam, Demos, and Drag Races At Harlem Skyscraper Cycling Classic, June 17 

New York City’s Premier Cycling Race unites the Olympic Sports of Cycling and BMX.

            New York, NY – June 4, 2012 – The King of New York®, the premier Pro/Am BMX event in New York City, teams up with the 39th Annual Harlem Skyscraper Classic on Sunday, June 17 at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, New York (122nd Street and Fifth Avenue.)  Bringing together the Olympic cycling worlds of Road Racing and BMX, the King of New York® mini-jam and stunt demos will feature some of the world’s best BMX Freestyle riders performing at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm in support of the cycling races occurring throughout the day.  Also showcased at the event will be King of New York Drag Races – BMX racing-style sprint races.

As always with the King of New York street events, the course layout will utilize our unique Building Block configuration, where the riders get to “put-it-how-you-want-it” and change the ramp set-up throughout the jam, mimicking a typical street session where multiple spots are hit on the same day.

Featuring multiple grindboxes, large and small quarterpipes, a 5-foot tall box jump, and a BMX racing practice gate, the bikepark for the King of New York mini-jam will be open from Noon to 5pm and is free and open to all riders (helmets required.). The pro riders onsite will offer tips and instructional sessions, and sign autographs for spectators.
