Wow, what a great road race yesterday in Greenville. After every lap over Paris Mountain the field seamed to cut in half. This was no doubt a tough course for many of the domestic pros who are accustomed to racing crits all season. It was really cool to see future teammates Hincapie and Leipheimer working together to keep the pace fast from the start. I won’t go into detail about the race; all of the cycling news sites have the story. I will say that one day after the event I am still super excited about Greenville’s first USA Pro Championship. It was so cool to see the pros race on roads that I ride all the time. For the most part, the rain held off; we really couldn’t have asked for a better weekend of racing. Way to bring that stars and stripes jersey home to Greenville George.
Oh yeah, check out some of my pictures of the time trial and the road race here.
