JANESVILLE — The 2023 Rock Prairie U.S. Paralympics Cycling time trial will be held June 14 on the grounds of Rock Prairie Presbyterian Church.

This race will serve as a selection event for the 2023 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships, which will take place in August in Glasgow, Scotland.

Many of the athletes are expected to stay overnight in Janesville to compete in the handcycling event held June 15 during the Janesville Town Square Gran Prix.

“We’re so excited to welcome athletes from all around the world to compete here in Rock County! It’s been a pleasure to work in partnership with the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee, the Tour of America’s Dairyland presented by Kwik Trip, and the Janesville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau to bring this incredible event to the area,” read a post on the Gran Prix Facebook page.

Race organizers recently released the route for the Janesville Town Square Gran Prix, the season kickoff race for the Tour of America’s Dairyland series.
