    This is the 55 edition of the Longsjo Classic. This race once drew riders from around the world, and all the major US pro teams. Due to several years of being down, less sponsorship dollars, and losing their spot on the US racing calendar the race has lost it's draw. The positive is I've seen more racers over the last few years, and hope the race can do more to promote itself. Here are a few little videos of two of the days racing. The present format is three days of crit. racing in three different cities in the region.
