Richmond to host 2015 World Road Cycling Championships

After almost a three decade hiatus, the UCI World Road Cycling Championships will be returning to the United States. The UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale,) cycling's governing body, announced today that Richmond has been named the host city for the 2015 championship.

The only previous U.S. venue was Colorado Springs in 1986. The announcement was made at today's time trial in Copenhagen, Denmark, in which Tony Martin (above) of Germany dethroned 4-time winner Fabian Cancellara, who was relegated to third behind Bradley Wiggins of Great Britain.
