SuperCross 2014

The weekend of November 22-23 brought a major sporting event to Rockland County, SuperCross 2014.

This event attracted nearly 1,000 participants along with their families and friends from around the world. Recognizing the many economic benefits, the RBA took a major role in supporting this exciting contest and through the efforts of the RBA's Hospitality and Tourism Alliance, the county was its lead sponsor.

With this support the SuperCross is now referred to as the "Rockland", a major leg of an annual international competition. This sport, still in its infancy, will grow in popularity in future years and will be a boost to the tourism industry in the county.

Planning for the 2015 Rockland SuperCross is already under way.
