|Be a sponsor of one of the best and fastest growing bicycle races in North Carolina!
Get in on the action! Because of the overwhelming success and support from the community and sponsors, the 2007 Dragon’s Challenge and the State Criterium Championship are going to be BIGGER and BETTER THAN EVER! Professional cycling teams and racers from all over the Eastern United States are lining up to race in the Premier Criterium event to be held May 26th through the streets of Historic Downtown Fayetteville.
What does this mean for a sponsor? Well, the 2008 NC Criterium Championship has been scheduled for one of the best weekends for bicycle racing, Memorial Weekend. For the last three years our races had over 600 racers, thousands of spectators, and $5,000-$10,000 in cash and prizes! This year we anticipate nearly 800 racers and 5,000+ spectators.
