Knoxville is fourth stop for cycling competition

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Hundreds of cyclists were seen in downtown Knoxville Saturday. The city is the fourth stop for the Southeast Regional Series Five-State Cycling Competition.

Amateur and experienced cyclists are racing over the weekend in 20 different categorized races.

SRS director Marilyn Cullinane says, "This is a .90 mile course distance and it's fully closed off so all the roads are blocked. The racers are doing time plus laps so it's a race of tactics, it's a race of speed and good bike handling skills."

Spectators can watch for free. The Knoxville Road Race kicks off Sunday at 8 a.m. at 7200 Corryton Road in Corryton.
