Cycling road, time trial nationals to Chattanooga



COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — USA Cycling has awarded the professional road and time trial championships for the next three years to Chattanooga, Tenn., and will hold races for women in conjunction with the men.

The announcement for the 2013-2015 races was made Thursday, the same day that cycling’s national governing body announced a four-year partnership with Volkswagen to sponsor the events.

This year’s professional road and time trial national championships are May 26-28 in Greenville, S.C. Dave Zabriskie is the defending road race champion while Matthew Busche is the reigning time trial champion.
