New date for Univest GP

This year's Univest GP will return to Souderton, PA on September 9, with the Univest Criterium in Doylestown to be held on the following day. Moving up a week from its traditional date on the National Race Calendar, USA Cycling has chosen the Pennsylvania race weekend to fill the spot left vacant by the San Francisco Grand Prix.

One of only six UCI sanctioned races in the United States, the Univest GP is now the final stop on this year's UCI American Tour, and for 2006 Univest Corporation will retain title sponsorship of the race. "After the success of last year's race, we're delighted that Univest Corporation has increased their commitment to bringing one of the most anticipated events on the North American cycling calendar back to the communities of Montgomery and Bucks counties," said race organiser, John Eustice. "The Univest weekend continues to be one of the crown jewels in North American cycling. We're confident that the new date will enhance the already established reputation of the Souderton road race as the defining one day classic of the U.S. while also showcasing the popularity of the Univest Criterium of Doylestown."
