USA Cycling Professional Road Championships 2021
Jun 17, 2021 - Jun 20, 2021
The USA Cycling Professional Road Championships return to Knoxville, Tennessee after the 2020 interruption due to COVID-19 coronavirus, with six stars-and-stripes jerseys doled out for pro men and women in three disciplines.
The rolling roads in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains will host the road race and individual time trial events for a fourth time, and it’s the third year downtown Knoxville will host the Pro Criterium competitions. While there are no significant obstacles with mountain elevation, it’s the repetitive pounding over punchy climbs combined with heat that create a different type of wall for riders.
The 2021 fields are the largest since the races have been held in Knoxville, with a total of 490 riders this year representing an 8 per cent increase.
