Crystal City, VA — The Crystal City Business Improvement District, in association with Vornado/Charles E. Smith, Dandies & Quaintrelles (D&Q), BNA and Sciathan Productions, is proud to announce that registration is now open for the inaugural Crystal City Diamond Derby, taking place on Saturday, March 10, 2012. The event will transform the parking garage at 1850 Crystal Drive in Crystal City into a glitzy, urban cycling arena for the competitive cyclist, amateur biker and everyone in between. With plenty of free activities for spectators, the Diamond Derby is sure to please!
Competitive cyclists can test their skills in obstacle courses with the goal of winning awards and prize money, casual cyclists can bike to the event in style and spectators can enjoy the action free of charge (please see the full schedule below). The Diamond Lounge will be the hub of spectator activity, featuring a big screen displaying the on-course action, a full bar and live music throughout the day.
