Hub Racing announced the Fifth Annual City Bikes RFK Criterium at the historic RFK stadium in Washington, DC, on June 17. The race will feature the US$5,000 Hub Racing Women's Challenge.
In 2006, Laura Van Gilder (racing with Cheerwine for 2007) took the US$1,000 top prize. The race is expected to draw top women again this year. Hub Racing team's own locals Becky Broeder, Nicole Raspa, Sheba Farrin, Dale Tye, and Jenette Williams will give them a run for their money.
The event includes eight bicycle races in total: all senior categories plus masters categories for men and women. There will also be a fun ride and a kids rodeo to teach young riders about cycling safety in a controlled environment.
