Yesterday’s Stage 3 of the Tour de Georgia ended up being the deciding stage, with an unexpected and very early break by a group of riders who put nearly thirty minutes on the peloton. Jason Sumner from VeloNews called it “one of the strangest days in recent U.S. cycling history.”
Rock Creek was happy to be a part of the action, sponsoring the final KOM climb on Burkhalter Gap on Lookout Mountain.
