Upstate Winter Bike League #4

UWBL #4 was awesome this weekend thanks to great weather and lots of riders. We rode 83 miles or so in just over four hours at an average speed of 20.7 mph. There were two official sprint zones, the first won by Greenville's own Rich Hincapie and the second by Boyd Johnson. Team Carolina Triathlon-Metro Reprographics holds the top spot in the Team Competition after Steve Sperry and Jim Taylor placed second and third in today's sprint zones respectively.

To add to the fun, UWBL #4 had a special guest in George Hincapie today. Looking fit and having fun, George idled along (compared to the rest of us) on his new Giant well-appointed with a Dura-Ace SRM.

UWBL #5 is next Saturday, January 12th and then it's off to Alto (Georgia) for an epic 120 fast miles on Saturday, January 19th.
