SoMD Crit - maybe next year

Many racers took the trip south to La Plata, MD on Sunday to race an exciting new venue on the College of Southern Maryland. It is fantastic Pax Velo could put on an event to fill the void of the beloved Leonardtown Crit!
As much as we like to race HPC powered by Altarum spent the day meeting and riding with the employees of our title sponsor Altarum. It was great to get to know the employees and see their enthusiasm about cycling and the healthy benefits. I didn't think it would be appropriate to show them my knees, elbows or shoulder scars:) We met in Georgetown early for a team group ride then headed over to Hains Point for the sponsor ride.

This is Alex. Look for him in the kids race at CSC. He's super fast!
Earlier in the week Bellie took time to represent the team at a press conference held in Reading, PA by the Organizers of the Commerce Bank Triple Crown of Cycling. Check out the article here

Another very important sponsor event took place on Capitol Hill last week. In support of National Women's Health Week and National Bike-to-Work Week part of the team got a tour of Congressional offices and adopted several members of Congress as co captains. Read all about it here.
