CYCLISTS COMPETING IN RACE ACROSS AMERICA PASS THROUGH GREENVILLE

You may have noticed some competitive cyclists with support crews traveling through Greenville last week.  Race Across America is a national event where cyclists from 25 countries compete to see who can pedal the fastest, coast to coast, across America.  The annual event involves individual racers and teams.  The clock never stops and each rider has their own support crew traveling with them.  Individual racers spend nine days or less bicycling across America, traveling approximately 300 miles per day.  Teams take about six days to travel coast to coast, covering 500 miles per day.

The racers traveled from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland passing through twelve states.  They entered Greenville on Rt. 140, traveled to Rt. 127, and left town on Highway 40.
