ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Air Force Cycling Classic Crystal CupThe weekend is here, which means Arlington is gearing up for the Air Force Association Cycling Classic.

Put on sunscreen and make your way to the main stage area to watch pro and amateur teams compete on one of the most challenging courses in the United States.

Don’t think competitive cycling sounds that tough or action-filled? Maybe this caught-on-video crash from the 2013 race in Crystal City will change your mind.

There will be multiple road closures as a result of the Saturday and Sunday races, including GW Parkway ramps, Wilson Boulevard, Clarendon Boulevard and Crystal Drive.

Feel free to sound off in the comments about the race or any other local topic that has piqued your interest.
