USPRO time trial, road race parcours revealed

By Mark Zalewski, North American Editor

Organisers of the new USPRO road and time trial national championships in Greenville, South Carolina have announced the race routes for the road race and time trial. The first-ever professional-only time trial will cover 30.6 kilometres through forests along the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway and the protected Greenville Watershed. The course is an out-and-back with one main climb and rolling hills.

The 211-kilometre road race course is a 36.8 kilometre loop that will be covered five times before reaching three 6.7-kilometre finishing circuits. The main difficulty will be the ascent over Paris Mountain, with an elevation of 1872 feet and an elevation gain of more than 6,000 total feet.

"The routes for both events are certainly challenging, which was our exact goal as this is the National Championship for professional cycling," said Chris Aronhalt, Managing Partner of Medalist Sports.

The road race finish line will be along Main Street, near the intersection of Broad Street, with the cyclists expected to finish near 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 3.
