Para-Cycling Road National Championships will run May 4-7, while Masters Road National Championships will be June 1-4 and will feature the iconic Fort Gordon Hills Road Race course and the time trial at Clarks Hill Lake.
The Volkswagen Professional Criterium and Team Time Trial National Championships will join Amateur Road National Championships in Louisville, Ky. June 29-July 2 after the Blue Grass State hosted a successful 2016 Amateur Road National Championships over the summer.
