Found this in my inbox this morning. Anyone know the inside scoop (and is willing to talk)?

Subject: Major Cycling Event Coming to Charlotte in 2004

Fellow cyclists,
I received a call tonight that will excite all fans of bike
racing. All of us will get a chance to see the best cyclists on the continent, here in Charlotte, starting in 2004.

A news conference will be held on Wednesday, August 6th at
11:15, at the Hearst Plaza (Tryon St near Ri Ra's), announcing a new event to be held in Charlotte in 2004.

I was asked to notify every cyclist I knew, to drum up
attendance for the 8/6 news conference, and start to get the Charlotte cycling community primed for a new era in cycling.

The details will be divulged at the news conference, so if you work in town or near town, or can play hooky for awhile, be at the Hearst Plaza on Wednesday August 6th at 11:15, to be the first to know about this new event.

Please forward this note all your cycling friends, young or old, to help spread the word.
