PARK CITY, Utah – Over Memorial Day weekend, the top-ranked Competitive Cyclist Racing Team will send eight riders to the Greenville Hospital System USA Cycling Pro Championships in Greenville, S.C. Three months into the racing season, the Team sits atop the National Racing Calendar (NRC) in first place after recent podium finishes at the Joe Martin Stage Race and SRAM Tour of the Gila. Although no NRC points can be won at the USA Cycling Pro Championships, the Team hopes to continue to build off their successful start at this prestigious event.

Representing the Competitive Cyclist Racing Team at the USA Cycling Pro Championships are: Mike Olheiser (USA), Taylor Shelden (USA), Ian Burnett (USA), David Williams (USA), Nate King (USA), Max Jenkins (USA), Cole House (USA), and Chad Beyer (USA).

The weekend’s racing starts on May 26 with the 20.7-mile USA Cycling Pro Individual Time Trial Championship, where Olheiser, Shelden, Burnett, Williams, and King will lead the charge for the Team. On May 28, all eight riders will race in the 115-mile USA Cycling Pro Road Race Championship through downtown Greenville – which will feature more than 100 professional cyclists.

“The event is a good opportunity for our riders to compete against other talented cyclists a few months into the season,” said directeur sportif Gord Fraser. “For the time trial, it would be great to place three of our riders in the top 12, and race aggressively and make things happen during the road race.”

On June 3, the Competitive Cyclist Racing Team will race at the UCI-sanctioned TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship in Philadelphia, Pa. The 156-mile classic remains the longest running single-day cycling road race in the U.S.
