Well it is nearing that time of year and you wonder what I'm talking about. The end of the road cycling season. This is an important time of year for the United States this season since Richmond VA is hosting the UCI Road World Championships. This is a big deal because this is the first time the Roads Worlds have been in North America since Hamilton Canada in 2003.
The event will be held from September 19-27 with the Team Time Trail kicking everything off and finishing with the Men's Elite Road Circuit race on Sunday. In between are numerous events from Juniors, Under 23 & Elite Women & Men. The road circuit will go on Monument Avenue and have a cobble section up to Libby Hill Park.
The City of Richmond has been preparing for this since December 21, 2010 so you should get there to see the action since you never know when it will be back on this side of the pond as the say. Hope to see you in Richmond!
