Team USA Cycling visits Richmond

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We're eleven months away from the 2015 World Cycling Championships hitting the streets of Richmond. Team USA is looking to get a leg up on the rest of the globe by getting familiar with the city and the courses.

Team USA Cycling was in Richmond this week for training camp, where the competitors spent time learning the courses and getting familiar with their teammates as well. The event concluded Thursday.

Among the team was Richmond native and Charlottesville resident Ben King. He completed his first Tour de France in July and hopes to continue his successful stretch at the World Championships. King says he's been all over the world and Virginia features some of the best riding areas on the planet.
