In commemorative of tenth anniversary of Sept.11, New York City will be hosting the World Police Fire games. 19,000 Police officers and Fire fighters from around the World will be competing in 65 sports, every two years the games are hosted in a different country.
Being a local racer and Police Officer I decided to volunteer and coordinate the cycling events. With all the tension between the police and the cycling community, this is a great opportunity for the N.Y.P.D to realize that cyclists are athletes and not the enemy. This will also show the cycling community how many local law enforcement, line up every week at the start lines of all the local races.
The games will run from 8/26 - 9/3. Opening Ceremonies will be at Prospect Park.
With the help of David Sommerville and his state of the art camera system the race venues are:
Road Race- Central Park ( with the approval of CRCA)
Criterium- Grant's Tomb
Time trial- Floyd Bennett Field
Hill Climb- Alpine hill Climb
Sprints- 800 meter sprints in Coney Island.
