2015 Brompton US Championships Announced!

It was just announced this week that this year's Brompton US Championship will be held on September 25, 2015 in Richmond, VA in conjunction with the UCI Road World Championships.

I've heard that we will be riding the actual course that the pros will be on for that day.  Here's Cav to give us a preview:

Curiously, this will be held after the BWC for this year, so I think that there will be no US Champion representation this year.  This year's BUSC champions will be going to next year's BWC.
