Thousands of people spent the weekend in Rockland County for a bicycle race that brought tourism and prestige to the Hudson Valley region, according to Rockland County Executive Ed Day.

Nearly 900 racers competed in the Supercross Cup weekend. Medalists traveled from as far away as Vermont to compete in the Hudson River classic, which took place on the  Suffern campus of Rockland Community College.

Bike riders from all over the Northeast attended along with their families. There were numerous free activities for children.

"We were happy to welcome the racers and their families who stayed in local hotels and ate at Rockland restaurants while they were here," Day said. "We hope they come back."

Numerous organizations were sponsors, including the Rockland County Department of Economic Growth and Tourism, which provided money for promotional activities.

"This is a good investment as we work to encourage tourism in Rockland County," Day said.

The race course was a closed loop of about 1.5 miles contested on a mixture of grass, dirt and gravel road surfaces entirely on the RCC campus.
