The Georgia Cycling Gran Prix, a new amateur racing series, will make its racing debut in Winder, Georgia at the TopView Cycling Classic on February 28-March 1, organisers announced this week. The TopView Cycling Classic will consist of two road races, the first in Barrow County, featuring a rolling 7.1 mile loop, the second a seven-mile circuit near Dacula, Georgia, with challenging, hilly terrain.
The next race in the series, the Regions Bank Weekend will be a two-day, three-stage race, beginning with a time trial and criterium in downtown Albany on Saturday, March 7, and a road race on March 8. The time trial begins on the riverside street of downtown Albany. With over ten turns in 3.1 K, the time trial will have riders ducking and diving and stomping on their pedals as they weave through the streets of downtown.
Competitors will revisit the TT course for the criterium - a figure-eight, two kilometre course through Albany, and then contest the road race, a 54.5km loop through the Albany country.
