About 1,000 athletes came to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers J. Strom Thurmond Dam on June 21, 2012 to compete in the USA Cycling National Time Trials. Hosted by the Augusta Sports Council, this was the second year in a row that the National Time Trials were held at the Thurmond Dam. The course was staged on the Georgia/South Carolina state line, requiring riders to start and finish the course with a dramatic ride across the Thurmond Dam.
A record number of cyclists, over 110, competed in the Paralympic events. These athletes were not only competing for national championships in their events, but for the 12 remaining spots on Team USA for the 2012 Paralympic Games. This was the last race influencing the Team USA selections.
