King’s County Challenge

King’s County Challege at Floyd Bennett Field

What’s racing at Floyd Bennett Field like?

Here are some quotes from former Cervelo Test Team Pro Rider João Correia, a frequent racer at Floyd Bennett Field, taken from a interview:

Two years ago, outside of the Philly races, I didn’t have higher numbers in any other race than at Floyd Bennett. The highest numbers I saw on my SRM were at Floyd.

The way people race (at Floyd Bennett Field) , you know, it’s weird. It’s a race where there’s nowhere to hide; you sit on guys, they’re not going anywhere; the break goes away and all of a sudden it’s not coming back and you can’t bring it back on your own.
