Retired professional cyclist Michael Rogers has confirmed his plans to ride in Gran Fondo Hincapie-Greenville on October 19, 2019. Rogers, a three-time World Time Trial Champion and stage winner at the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France, will ride the 80-mile Gran route alongside other cycling greats like George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde, Bobby Julich, Lance Armstrong, Victor Hugo Pena, Justin Williams, and Santiago Botero.

Since retirement, Rogers has founded VirtuGO, a new indoor cycling app that combines pro cycling-inspired training and stunning virtual environments into one seamless experience.

“I’m thrilled to come back to Greenville for my second Gran Fondo Hincapie,” says Rogers. “Last year’s ride was so much fun, so I’m sure this year’s event will be even better. The cycling community continues to praise the unique experience that George and his team have created and continue to improve.”

“I’m thrilled to have Michael Rogers back with us in Greenville,” says George Hincapie. “We had a great time last year. It’s always fun to reconnect on the road in my home town.”

Gran Fondo Hincapie hosts events in Chattanooga, Fort Worth, Boise, and Greenville, SC. The Greenville ride, now in its eighth year, has topped charts and received stellar reviews, acclaimed for the cycling celebrities in attendance, as well as the careful attention to safety, on-site viewing screens, course and segment timing, live tracking and streaming, live bands at the rest stops, and free family festival.
