Held in Charlotte's Center City, an international field of the world's top men and women's professional cyclists will take to the streets of uptown Charlotte and will compete for one of the largest prize purses in the Novant Health Invitational Criterium (formerly known as the Presbyterian Hospital Invitational). Returning for its 11th year, the races take place on a 1.25 mile spectator friendly course starting at the Center City intersection of Trade and Tryon Streets, where spectators are up close to the fast, exciting racing action. Over the past several years, these races attracted more than 35,000 spectators to watch an elite field of riders from 23 countries. This race benefits the Brain Tumor Fund Carolinas.
