Watching this video this gave me a wonderful glimpse of what Richmond is going to look like on TV during the World Road Cycling Championships this fall:
Mark Cavendish (Etixx-QuickStep) has undertaken a reconnaissance of the 2015 UCI World Championships road race course in Richmond, USA, […].
Fresh from winning four stages and the points classification at the Amgen Tour of California, Cavendish rode the route in Richmond under police escort as they closed the roads in his honour. Sky News reports that he rode the course at dawn.
Cavendish won the 2011 road race title in Copenhagen, beating Matt Goss (Australia) and Andre Greipel (Germany) in a bunch sprint to become only the second British rider to wear the iconic rainbow jersey after Tom Simpson in 1965.
The UCI World Championships will be in Richmond for 8 days in September, beginning on September 19 with the first training runs and ending on Sunday, September 27, with the Men’s Elite Road Circuit race.
