FROM USACYCLING.org: 2011/2012 USPRO Criterium National Championships headed to Grand Rapids!
Michigan has been selected to host a National Championship since I think 1969 (US Track Championships, correct me if I'm wrong).
Michigan racing has been growing steadily year to year and the selection of Grand Rapids to host the US Pro National Championships is a BIG vote of support from the national governing body.
Michigan cycling fans owe a big SHOUT-OUT to everyone involved with bringing the Championships to Michigan - the Bissell Cycling team, Mark Bissell, Robert Hughes, Craig Rawlings, and more people that I'm sure I've missed.
2011 IS GONNA ROCK!!!!!
lets hope this holds true!
