    Family Bike Shop of Crofton, MD and Whole Foods Market are sponsoring the Elite race purses- $1000 each. DCCX will also have a $250 purse for the Elite Masters race.

    Other sponsors: Glover Parkís Blue Ridge Restaurant, Sticky Fingers Bakery, The Embassy of Belgium, and Bikereg.com.

    DCCX - Presented by Family Bike Shop is Washington, DCís only cyclocross race, held on October 25th on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home. The historic venue near Georgia Ave. in northwest Washington is transformed for the race into a festival celebrating biking and the sportís northern European roots. More than a race, the DC Mountain Bike Team, which sponsors, has crafted an event celebrated by participants and spectators for good food, beverages and fun.

    Whole Foods Market will be on hand to distribute some goodies, host club DCMTB will be cooking up frites, and the DC Dutch club will make special mini-pancakes, all free of charge. Other sponsors include beer from Blue Ridge restaurant, yummy vegan baked goods from Sticky Fingers Bakery, and the Embassy of Belgium. There are no food concessions on site, so bring a lunch and enjoy the free refreshments while watching the premier afternoon events.

    The 2009 race is the third annual incarnation of the event, which is part of the nine-part series of the Mid-Atlantic Bicycle Racing Association. Last yearís DCCX, with more than 400 racers, was the largest race in the MABRA history. Proceeds from the race are donated to help veterans living at the facility, which had been a summer retreat for Abraham Lincoln.

    Racing begins at 9am with the entry-level class and culminates with the Womenís Elite race presented by Whole Foods Market at 1:30 and the Menís Elite race presented by Family Bike Shop at 2:30.
