The Corporate Challenge is one of the featured events during the weekend’s Armed Forces Cycling Classic, presented by The Boeing company.

The Amazon Corporate Challenge is open to organizations, small or large, and allows companies to participate in Saturday’s Challenge Ride as a group. This year’s Amazon Corporate Challenge will see twenty teams competing for the most total laps by a team or for the most laps by their top six riders.
