"I'm thrilled to bring high-speed criterium racing back to Greenville, South Carolina. This event will be a fantastic spring highlight for the entire community to enjoy, further enriching our blossoming cycling culture here in the Upstate."


George Hincapie

"I first came to Greenville for the National Championships in 2007 and little did I know that in 2016 I would become a resident of this amazing town. There is a huge cycling community in the Upstate and as an ex-cyclist and current mega fan of the sport, I am super excited to see that big time bike racing will be returning to downtown Greenville! If you are a fellow cycling fan or absolute newbie to the sport, come out and enjoy what I know will be an epic event!"


Bobby Julich

"It’s so exciting to see a professional bike race being held in downtown Greenville! I’ve officially lived here for 8 years now and am thrilled to see the cycling community thriving. Since it’s the first race of Speed Week, it will be an awesome one to watch since the riders will all be working hard to set the tone for the rest of the week. I can’t wait to check it out!"
