11th ANNUAL CSC INVITATIONAL TO HOST MOST TALENTED FIELD TO DATE

Arlington Sports Announces Teams to Compete in the June 1 Men’s Pro race

Arlington, VA – The 2008 CSC Invitational will play host to the most talented field of professional cyclists to race on the streets of Clarendon in its 11 year history. Pro Tour teams CSC and High Road will lead the way and be joined by 16 other pro teams, including Tour de France bound Slipstream-Chipotle presented by H3O on the Sunday, June 1, 2008 event.

“This is truly a big year for us with so much talent lining up on June 1,” said Rob Laybourn, Race Director. “Between the position of the event on the race schedule and the reputation it has developed over the years, the CSC Invitational has become a major objective on all the team schedules.”

Rock Racing will have defending champion Rahsaad Bahati on hand with the support of 3-time USPRO Road Champion Fred Rodriguez. Last year’s CSC Invitational was a break-out win for the first year pro team. During the awards presentation, Bahati proclaimed “besides winning Nationals, this is the biggest win I have ever had!” Bahati is already showing great form after winning Athens Twilight in April.
