This Sunday, July 6th, Manhattan Beach will host the 53rd Annual Manhattan Beach Grand Prix. This is a USA Cycling National Criterium Calendar (NCC) event with international participants. But, it is also a community event with races for kids and a vintage bicycle show. There are races for all levels of USAC racers as well as community racers. It is quite exciting to watch and it is easy to find a good viewing spot along the raceway.
Sponsors and vendors set up tents along Veterans Parkway near the start/finish line at Live Oak Park and provide free samples of nutritionals. There is also a food court. The total men's purse is $15,000. Events begin at 7:00 AM.
