Speed. Suffering. And Italian Food! (Giro di Coppi presented by Vapiano)

6 Jul

So there’s this little bike race my team puts on every year:

The Giro di Coppi has rightly earned its regard as a classic on the mid-Atlantic summer calendar.  Sharp, steep climbs over a gorgeous course in Montgomery County, Maryland.  The weather is always a factor, whether it’s the heat or summertime torrential rains.

This year, there’s even more excitement: Italian restaurant Vapiano has signed on as our title sponsor for the race!  Combining fresh, top-quality ingredients with fast, make-it-in-front-of-you service, Vapiano has been a huge hit with the team in the year since we started having our monthly team dinners there.

As part of their sponsorship, Vapiano is hosting a gift card giveaway on their Facebook page this week, and a number pickup happy hour on July 15, the night before the race.  (Yes, come, come, have a beer the night before the race.  Or several.  Carbo-loading is very important.)

So, what should you do after reading this?

1.  Go to Vapiano USA on Facebook and win yourself some stuff.

2.  Go register for the Giro di Coppi presented by Vapiano.  (No day-of registration, so this is your only way to sign up.)

3.  Come to Vapiano in Ballston on July 15 to pick up your race number.  Save yourself some stress on race day morning.

4.  Come race your brains out at the Giro on July 16, and refuel with a delicious dinner at Vapiano afterwards.

That is all.
