A popular series in the Southeastern US, the Georgia Cup, will return again for the 2007 season. Distinguished from other racing series by a unique format of all omnium weekends, the Cup also features four competitions and corresponding jerseys: The white GC jersey for the leader of the series, the Yellow Jersey for race leader of each event, The Most Aggressive Rider Jersey for sprint primes, and The King of the Mountain Jersey for the fastest climber.
The 2007 Maxxis Georgia Cup presented by Lowe's Mortgage had it's February season opener in Albany, and will move on to Gainesville, Savannah, Dahlonega, Rome, Lagrange, Nashville, Birmingham, Rock Hill. The season will conclude at the East Village Race in Buckhead with the Aaron's Buckhead Grand Prix.
The next race in the series will be Gainesville, Georgia on March 24th, as the Gainesville Grand Prix returns for its third consecutive year. "The Georgia Cup has quickly become the premier cycling series in the Southeast," said Gentry Arnette, CEO of Spincycle."Gainesville is a great course because you can see both sides of the square, so essentially you get to see the spills and thrills every 30 seconds."
