The Longsjo Classic

June 30 - July 01 2019
Leominster, Massachusetts, USA

The Longsjo Classic is named after Arthur “Art” Matthew Longsjo, Jr. (October 23, 1931 – September 16, 1958), who was an American Olympian speed skater and cyclist. He was the first person to compete in the Summer and Winter Olympics in the same year.

Art Longsjo died in 1958 following a car accident in Burlington, Vermont. He had been returning from the Quebec-Montreal Road Race. In 1960 the Fitchburg Longsjo Classic was held in Fitchburg in memory of Longsjo. The race is a road bicycle racing stage race and is still held annually. Longsjo was inducted into the National Speedskating Hall of Fame in 1970, and the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in 1988.
