US Pro Championships to return to Greenville

By Sue George with additional reporting by Mark Zalewski

After an exciting photo finish to the professional men's US National Championship road race, won by Tyler Hamilton (Rock Racing) on Sunday evening, in Greenville, South Carolina, USA Cycling's Steve Johnson announced the location for the 2009 championship event.

Although 2008 marked the final year of Greenville's current three-year contract to host both the road and time trial national championship, USA Cycling, gave the South Carolina city another year to host.

Previously the professional road championship race was hosted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as part of what is now the final event of the Commerce Bank Triple Crown race.
