Qualifying event for Olympics to be held at Greenbrier

April 03, 2007

Greenbrier State Park in Washington County on April 29 will host the Greenbrier Challenge, a mountain bike race that will be a key Olympic qualifying event.

For the first time, the race will be sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the international sanctioning body of bicycle racing that also is recognized by the International Olympic Committee as the source for determining the cycling role of each nation in the Olympics.

The Greenbrier Challenge is one of a few races by which U.S. racers may obtain invitations to the U.S. National Championships to be held in Vermont in July.

Over the past three years, riders from around the world have participated in the Greenbrier Challenge.
