    Rockstar has announced that they will be participating once again with the 37th annual Harlem Skyscraper Cycling Classic.  Amateurs and Olymplians alike will descend upon Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park on Father’s Day, June 20 to participate in this annual event.  Sponsoring the race for a second consecutive year gives Rockstar Games the opportunity to mix their passion for cycling with an event that enriches the community.  Members of Rockstar Games will be on-hand with Rockstar branded merchandise near the start and finish lines.

    “Cycling is a die-hard passion for many of us at Rockstar,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games.  “We look forward to a day filled with exciting bike races and entertainment. It’s a real honor for us to be involved once again with such a prestigious New York City street event.

    The race day will begin with a series of children’s and community races from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. The children’s races have been designated as NYC Mayor’s Cup events, which will crown “the fastest riders in New York City.”  Each child who competes will be given a free helmet and T-shirt courtesy of the New York City Department of Transportation. Winners of the children’s races will each receive a free bicycle.

    Adding to the block party atmosphere will be live performances by hip-hop icons Biz Markie and Mister Cee amongst other performers. New York City’s famed Wafels & Dinges and Frites & Meats food trucks will be at the event for all in attendance.  Jumbotron screens and a series of amateur races will warm up the crowd for the David Walker Memorial Pro/Am at 4:00 p.m.

    “NYC Media is pumped to be airing the 37th annual Skyscraper bike race live on NYC life, channel 25,” said Todd Asher, Chief Operating Officer of NYC Media. “This marks NYC life’s first venture into live sports in our short history and we could not be more proud of our role in helping provide quality content to the biking community, the Harlem community and the City as a whole on Father’s Day.”
