The Redlands Bicycle Classic Committee and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has announced their partnership as presenting sponsor of the 29th Annual Redlands Bicycle Classic. This event will be held April 4 – 7, 2013 in Redlands, CA. The Classic also has the distinction of being the first race on the 2013 USA Cycling National Racing Calendar cycling series.
“We are pleased to announce that the Redlands Bicycle Classic will be, “Presented By” the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. It is an honor to have a presenting sponsor with such a rich history in the region, a history that includes supporting important community organizations and events”, Says Dan Rendler, Redlands Bicycle Classic President.
For 29 years, Redlands has been host to thousands from the local community and around the world, as more than 300 volunteers put on a world class event in the form of bike racing. Athletes of all abilities from toddlers barely able to touch the pedals, to seasoned professionals ready to become the next legend compete while the world watches as Redlands and surrounding communities put on this fantastic community event.
“The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Redlands Bicycle Classic and looks forward to having visitors from far and wide to historic downtown Redlands,” said San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Chairperson Carla Rodriguez. “San Manuel is honored to support the racers, volunteers and cycling fans for whom the Classic is a true labor of love. Community efforts like this help to build a strong and vibrant Inland region.”
The professional men and women’s races will include four tough days of racing, beginning with a Time Trial on Thursday, then a grueling road race in the scenic City of Beaumont on Friday, and wrapping up in Redlands with a criterium Saturday, and the famous Sunset Road Race on Sunday.
