The 49th annual Nevada City Classic was held yesterday, June 21st. This race is a landmark on the Northern California racing schedule and attracts many top riders from across the states. The course offers around 120’ of climbing per 1.1 mile lap with 7 turns and is therefore considered to be one of the most technically and physically challenging 1-day courses in America.
Tom conquered this course in 1973 when he won as a junior. He was invited by the promoters to attend this year’s race. He was on the mic for an interview before the pro race began.
