– July 15) – Building on the excitement of the recent announcement of the return of six-day style of racing to the US, Hollywood Championship Cycling is excited to announce that Kent Gordis will produce television and webcast segments for the Hollywood Championship Cycling (HCC) on October 11th – 13th. HCC will take place at the VELO Sports Center located at the StubHub Center complex in Carson, CA. Gordis, an eight-time Emmy winner, has produced TV for six Tours de France, eight Olympic Games, the Biathlon World Cup, and the Dick Clark Rockin’ New Years Eve with Ryan Seacrest.
Gordis believes the popular six-day format, with 15 two-man corporate sponsored teams competing in a variety of spectator-friendly races over three days, is perfect for TV and webcast audiences.
Josh Rechnitz, Executive Producer, HCC, is thrilled about Gordis joining with HCC and its potential to reach a global audience. “I’m excited Kent is on board with HCC,” said Rechnitz. “He has the expertise to capture the riveting experience of the racing and ambiance and produce it for a live webcast and TV audience. It’ll be a spectacular show.”
“From a production standpoint, I feel TV broadcasts and webcasts of races are much better suited for the track compared to road racing since the costs are much lower and all of the action takes place for all to see right there on the track,” said Gordis. “I also think the Hollywood Championship Cycling event will help grow the sport and prove to be a sustainable business model. I’m excited to be part of bringing 6-day style bike racing back to its roots with Hollywood Championship Cycling.”
