I’m sure everyone already had their calendar circled, but just in case, the USA Cycling Road Race Championships takes place today for both the men’s and women’s category.
Most of the big names will be there(get over here Tejay van Garderen), but if you know anything about this race’s history, it’s anyone’s game.
Eric Marcotte of Team SmartStop will be back to defend his title while Alison Powers of United Healthcare retired after winning.
This will also be the last go around for cycling favorites Ted King(Cannondale) and Freddy Rodriguez(Jelly Belly).
If you missed the Time Trial action on Saturday, cycling legend Kristin Armstrong took home first in the women’s, while Andrew Talansky(Cannondale) won his first national title, while last year’s winner, Taylor Phinney(BMC), never got to wear his USA jersey still recovering from his crash in the national road race.
The action starts at 6am, Pacific Time, with the women’s race covering 104km, while the men’s starts at 10:30am covering 165km.
