RVA Take Over: 2014 USA Collegiate Cycling Championship

Hello again world! I hope you had a fabulous weekend, I sure did! Today I’m writing my recap of the 2014 USA Collegiate Cycling Championship held in downtown Richmond, VA this past weekend. Any one anywhere near Richmond heard the race was coming to help us prepare for the UCI Road World Championship in 2015.

Tons of new pavement and loads of road closures, I was super nervous driving into work Friday morning; unsure of what I’d find. I was pleased to find I had no problems getting to the office.

I brought the camera, and had a chance to go check the finish and starting lines.  It was pretty cool! Here’s just a couple of  shots of the starts of the team timed trials.

Watching the schools race made me miss my bicycle! They were so fast!

Traffic getting out of the city was pretty miserable but I think it’s great that such a big event came to our city! Richmond has come along way in recent years and we cannot WAIT to show the world Richmond and all of it’s beautiful and historic nooks and crannies.
