Team BikeExchange-Jayco ’s Michael Matthews and Dylan Groenewegen are expected to compete at the inaugural Maryland Cycling Classic supported by UnitedHealthcare, headlining the early rosters among the four WorldTour squads invited to compete at the event on September 4.
A preliminary roll call of international riders provided by race organisers also confirmed Giacomo Nizzolo and Sep Vanmarcke of Israel-Premier Tech , Tony Gallopin and Toms Skujins of Trek-Segafredo , and Marijn Van Den Berg of EF Education-EasyPost .
After a delay of two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Maryland Cycling Classic rescheduled its debut for late summer 2022 with a start in Sparks, Maryland and a finish in downtown Baltimore along the Chesapeake Bay. Australian programme BikeExchange-Jayco and US-based Trek-Segafredo were the first two teams confirmed for the rescheduled launch of the UCI 1.Pro event, which is the only race of that level in the US this year.
“I am excited to be racing again in America, it has been a while since I have raced there. My last race in the United States was at the World Championship, and I am looking forward to meeting our American fans again,” said Matthews , who finished second at the Road World Championships in Richmond in 2015.
