Taking place the weeknd of September 6th and 7th this year, John Eustice, owner of Sparta Cycling, created the Univest Grand Prix. Now in its 11th year the race is one of only thirteen Union Cyclist International (UCI)-ranked professional road cycling competitions for men in the United States with more than 150 professional riders from 20 countries competing.
Outside of the Bux-Mont Awards, Bikeworks and The Harleysville Hotel is the Leidy's Sprint. The racers come right by us and the excitement ensues. The Harleysville Hotel was out grilling and providing free water for all. The weather held out and we were able to see the racers come by us at tremendous speeds. Check out the videos below of the Leidy's Sprint. The racers are on their way into Green Lane for a king of the mountain competition and will be greated by the Green Lane Scottish Irish festival and their bag pipers!
