A ‘huge deal’ for Baltimore: Maryland Cycling Classic expected to bring in millions

August 31, 2022

When organizers outlined the scope of the Maryland Cycling Classic in Baltimore, one called it “the Preakness on wheels.” That might be an apt description if the Preakness were the only portion of horse racing’s Triple Crown held in the United States, said Joe Traill, owner of Joe’s Bike Shop in Mount Washington and Fells Point. “It would be like getting a Formula One race here,” Traill said. “This is rare for anywhere in the United States, let alone Baltimore. Some people have worked really hard to get this done. … I hope people in Baltimore realize what a huge deal this is. People are going to come to watch this race, and it’s not just Baltimoreans.”
