Tri Team TORC Issues Challenge

From David Cutter, TORC Technologies:

TORC is already declaring the New River Valley Triathlon Valley Cup will be theirs.

For a bunch of engineers, TORC claims to be rather athletic, participating in softball leagues each year, and even sponsoring their first men’s basketball team this winter.  A few avid bikers, runners, and even a high-school swimmer or two mix it up with their sky-diving CEO, and they love a challenge.  Training has begun, and TORC is confident it will take home the Valley Cup

Any other VT KnowledgeWorks, Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, or NewVa Corridor Technology, NCTC companies want to step up to the plate and try to take on TORC in the New River Valley Triathlon corporate relay challenge for the Valley Cup?


TORC Technologies is automating dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks by commercializing intelligent robotic technologies into interoperable off-the-shelf products, providing the essential building blocks for rapidly enabling autonomy on virtually any platform.

Located in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center in Blacksburg, Virginia, TORC is a rapidly growing company widely recognized as a leading source of teleoperated control and autonomous navigation solutions for unmanned vehicles. 

Registration for the New River Valley Triathlon corporate relay challenge for the Valley Cup opens on Tuesday, January 6, 2009, at 7:00 PM.  Some Virginia races fill within an hour.  The New River Valley Triathlon will be held on Sunday, July 12, 2009 at the brand new, state-of-the-art Christiansburg Aquatic Center.

The New River Valley Triathlon is being organized by many individuals and groups, including Handshake 2.0, a venture of Handshake Media, Incorporated.  Handshake Media and TORC Technologies are both member companies of business acceleration center VT KnowledgeWorks.

The New River Valley Triathlon benefits the Mental Health Association of the New River Valley, Inc.
