“George is not only a world-class athlete, but a world-class ambassador for the sport of cycling. We encourage all cycling fans to cheer on George and use the baseball game to get ready for the Pro Championships and the Stars and Stripes Challenge,” said Kevin Dunn, president of Palmetto Peloton Project, the organization that produces the Stars and Stripes Challenge fundraising events that are part of championship weekend in Greenville.

During the game, cycling-themed items will be given away, including Greenville Hospital System USA Cycling Professional Championships merchandise and VIP tickets, and a children’s bicycle from The Great Escape bike shop.
