Heritage series brings kermesse-style racing to South Carolina

By Kristy Scrymgeour

Starting on April 29 is the inaugural South Carolina Heritage Cycling Tour. The series consists of four evening criteriums held in different cities along the South Carolina Heritage Corridor. Races begin in Anderson, moving through Walterboro to Greenwood, and ending on May 2 in Aiken. Race courses will be 50 miles through the downtown areas of these historic cities.

Sitting between the Tour de Georgia, contested last week and the well-known Shelby and Roswell criteriums, the series aims to catapult cycling in the Southeast, both among sponsors and riders, and awaken professional riders to the intense training opportunities in the area.

Teams on the start list include Team Saturn who proved their strength once again last week with Horner taking the overall win at the Tour de Georgia, Navigators, recently returned from a successful European campaign, US Postal, Jittery Joe's, Health Net, Colovita/Bolla, Schroeder Iron, Prime Alliance and Ofoto-Lombardi Sports.

Riders coming off Tour de Georgia will in fine form to support their sprinters in what will be a very fast week of kermesse-style racing. Favourites include renowned criterium specialists Ivan Dominguez (Saturn), Marty Northstein (Navigators), Australian Jeff Hopkins (Jittery Joe's), and Jonas Carney (Prime Alliance). Also on the start list are David Clinger who so masterfully won the final stage of Tour the Georgia on Sunday and Dan Schmatz (7UP - Maxxis) who took out Saturday night's Twilight Criterium in downtown Athens.
