2016 UCI Energy Invitational Video

Here at UCI we are hard at work on three different race cars for 2017 competitions. It is a tough time, as it seems things move too slowly. I offer this video of highlights from the May 21, 2016 UCI Energy Invitational on UCI’s campus to inspire all of our race teams as they work to prepare their cars for the 2017 Energy Invitational. Many thanks to Vital Link and UCI Anteater Racing for their support of a terrific event.
