Tour de Georgia holds time trials today at Road Atlanta

POSTED: May 5, 2008 5:00 a.m.

The Tour de Georgia rolled into Road Atlanta today, giving cycling fans a chance to see a team time trial.

While some spectators watched the trials from the shade of the pines surrounding the track, others like Chad Truelove of Gainesville rode their bikes through the infield area at Road Atlanta.

"It's just exciting seeing all the professional guys up close." said Truelove.

Truelove is a big cycling fan. He usually has to watch the sport on TV, but has attended a Tour de Georgia event in a previous year.

Some of the teams are packing up and leaving Road Atlanta, having completed their races today. Others are keeping their muscles warm on stationary bikes.

The Tour's next stage begins tomorrow in Suwanee and winds through Forsyth and Dawson counties before entering the mountains and ending in Dahlonega.

Visit later today for stories, photo and video from the time trials.
