My YouTube issues have been resolved and I’m now able to bring you the video clips from yesterday’s press conference. The event was held at the offices of Hincapie Sportswear in Greenville, South Carolina on May 12, 2009. The following clips are broken down to feature the various speakers at the meeting.
“We are very excited to bring back the US Professional Championships back to Greenville in 2009” – Chris Aronhalt
“This is our fourth year and it is really neat to live in a community where a handshake really means a lot” – Michael Riordan
“This is really what we consider our signature event for the City of Greenville.” – James Bourney
“This is really the first time we have ever supported an event like this in the Carolinas.” – George Acker
“37 states have been represented this year [for the Stars and Stripes Challenge]… it is truly a national event.” – Kevin Dunn
“Everyone keeps saying this is the fourth year. Has it been four years since I won this race? I had better get on it!” – George Hincapie
“It is a bicycle where you use your arms… Unfortunately I started with cyclist arms, so it is a little bit of a learning curve for me.” – Ryan Barnett
“A 60 minute show broadcast the following weekend on Universal Sports.” – Chris Aronhalt
