Carter Sponsors Local Annual Cycle Race
The L5Flyers cycling team proudly hosted the 9th annual Grant Park Criterium cycling race over the weekend. Carter was a presenting sponsor of this year’s event. Located in Grant Park, in the heart of one of Atlanta’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods, the event attracted top regional and national talent.

Carter was proud to be the 2013 presenting sponsor for the event, with the Carter logo displayed in all advertising, announcements and media. Our strong presence in Atlanta made us an ideal partner for the Grant Park Criterium.
The Grant Park Criterium is an annual, multi-lap closed race located in Grant Park, Atlanta, Georgia. It features a series of amateur races for men and women, a kid’s race and professional level races.

Conor McNally, chief development officer for Carter, is an avid cyclist who participated in the event. “It’s really special to see everyone come together for this event. It’s really an incredible community program, in a fantastic setting. With everything from kid’s races to high level professionals racing on a fast closed loop course, this event has it all” Conor said.
Thank you to everyone who participated to make this another successful year – racers, sponsors and spectators alike!
