Update 06/16/12: Why? = Four US cyclists opt out of Olympic consideration "... Levi Leipheimer, George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde and David Zabriskie asked that they be taken out of the running for places on the road cycling team for the London Games, USA Cycling announced in a brief statement Saturday."
Where will the Olympic cycling venues be?
The road race route begins at The Mall and heads south-west through London, across the River Thames at Putney Bridge, through Richmond Park, Bushy Park, and past Hampton Court Palace before heading out to Surrey. The course will include laps around the 15.5-kilometer circuit of Surrey’s Box hill (nine laps of the circuit for the men and two laps for the women) before heading back to the city.
