Memorial Day in the U.S. marks the traditional National Championship Road Race.
The Team will have three cards to play in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Johnathan Freter rode a great race at Amgen Tour of California after an unfortunate mishap on Stage 1. The tenacity that Freter displayed in California will serve him well at Nationals, and he should be carrying over some form.

There are a number of World Tour riders taking the start. All will be wary of taking any group to the finishing circuits that includes Freddie Rodriguez.


Wily is an understatement. Freddie got through AToC comfortably in the last season of a legendary career. Four (count ’em) titles makes him a perennial threat, and we are certain that he wouldn’t mind retiring in the Stars And Stripes.

Gavin Mannion was a contender for GC at Tour of California. It didn’t play out that way, but his move on Mt. Baldy got 14th on The Queen Stage and left many notables straggling. That sort of form will tackle Lookout Mountain handily and Mannion’s tactical nous and dark horse status should allow him some freedom as the selections are made.

U.S. Pro Nationals is always a unique dynamic and the coverage has been better every year. Tune in via VeloNews at 1:30 Eastern on May 25th.
