With summer rapidly approaching, Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank is nearing the end of its three-month long block of North American racing. Riders are currently in New Jersey for a TTT camp before the Armed Forces Cycling Classic races in Arlington, Virginia this coming weekend. The following week will see the team compete at the North Star Grand Prix in Minneapolis June 14 -18. The National Championships (June 24-29) conclude the Team’s North American block and will be followed by a return to Europe for the duration of the summer.
This weekend’s Armed Forces Cycling Classic has been a favorite race of the team since 2010. Saturdays race is the 50-kilometer Clarendon Cup and Sunday’s event is the Crystal Cup, a 60-minute criterium on a 1.3-mile course in downtown Arlington. Over the years the team has put 13 riders on the podium including four victories.
