The US Air Force Cycling Classic, set for May 4, in Crystal City, Virginia, will donate portions of proceeds from the event to the Raisin Hope Foundation which helps individuals who have suffered Traumatic Brain Injuries, including providing funds for research and medical care facilities. The event will also help members of the United States military who have sustained traumatic brain injuries while serving the US military.
Complimenting the elite race program, amateur riders are invited to take part in the Inaugural Crystal Ride, beginning and ending at the US Air Force Memorial. The ride will utilize a 12.5 kilometer circuit in Arlington that riders can complete for up to eight laps (100km).
Last year's race was won by Kyle Wamsley and Laura Van Guilder.
