Cyclist Develops Village For Athletes In South Carolina

George Hincapie, former teammate of Lance Armstrong, plans to build houses and condos in Greenville County. The 300-acre development includes amenities designed for athletes.

Greenville developer Ron Vergnolle says that the village will "include a 35,000-square-foot training center with a weight room, indoor pool, aerobic studio, indoor cycling studio, spa, dry sauna and media center. It will also include a hotel, conference center, bicycle shop, restaurant and two four-mile tracks outside, one for cycling and the other for mountain biking and trail running."

Two-acre lots are for sale for $500,000 to $1.2 million; some lots have sold to New Yorkers as well as people from the southeast. "The development is designed to appeal to athletes involved in 'performance training' -- cyclists, triathletes and marathon runners -- although anyone can buy property, Vergnolle said."
