We competed in our first race in Pinellas Park as a pre-cursor for our season kick-off race in May at St. Augustine. It was great to get the banner our there and start promoting the Cycle 4 Alzheimer’s name at the race events. We will be out at a majority of races the rest of the season and look forward to competing and spreading the word for our sponsor’s causes. Please check out the team site and Facebook Pages.
