Reigning US professional road race national champion George Hincapie and two-time U-23 national champion Craig Lewis will compete at this weekend's St. Francis Classic in downtown Greenville on October 14th. The event will mark the first time Hincapie and Lewis will wear their national champion uniforms in front of their hometown crowd.
"We are extremely excited to host world class athletes like George Hincapie and Craig Lewis for the St. Francis Classic," said Rich Hincapie, longtime race director. "Cycling excitement is at an all-time high in Greenville and we’re looking forward to a very successful event."
Lewis and Hincapie are not the only National Champions competing in the St. Francis Classic. Shane Weever, racing for the local Hincapie Sportswear/Greer State Bank cycling team, is the reigning Masters 30-34 Road Race National Champion.
