It’s almost June…

By  | 
Summer is nearly here and we can almost touch it with our fingertips. The weather these days, however, is still stuck in the wild mood swings of Spring (so many overcast and cool days, including today). Maybe that’s why it doesn’t quite feel like 2018 is half over yet?
This week Carsfera Media Services is happy to announce our recent partnership with Arlington Sports. This partnership will allow us to offer you during the month of June two big events in Crystal City, Arlington, VA
The Armed Forces Cycling Classic scheduled for June 9th & 10th

The race showcases a form of cycling involving a series of high-speed bike races that take place on a 1km course on city streets.

The day concludes as we bring out the pro Men’s Teams in the Invitational at approximately 12:05pm.The men’s pro race is 100 laps (100km) and we guarantee an exciting finish as they race to be crowned winner of this prestigious event

Bronze, silver and gold medals will be awarded for those who can complete at least 3, 6 or 9 laps within the 3 hour course closure (additional laps will be required over previous years, due to the route adjustment to accommodate the current road construction). All riders must be off the course by 10am.

Sunday’s featured event is the Men’s pro race that will include some of the top pros in the world, and is the second day of racing for Pro/Am teams competing in the weekend’s Omnium competition.
