This Sunday, the Capital Criterium returns to Pennsylvania Avenue.   In addition to pro racing at 1pm, there are local races in the AM, a kids race (free helmets for every entrant) after, and a local celebrity ride in support of bringing a stage of the Giro d’Italia to DC in 2012.  I’ll be there.  You? Photos from the inaugural edition are here.  More info after the jump.
