Colorado to host US Paralympics selection event

More than 300 top athletes with and without disabilities from across the country will descend on Colorado to compete on bicycles and handcycles June 15-17. They will battle it out on the roads of Morrison, Golden, and Denver in a three-day cycling race that will double as a selection event for the US Paralympics Team on the road to Beijing, 2008.

The weekend's events put athletes with and without disabilities together on the same course, in front of the same crowds. More than 50 athletes with disabilities will travel to Colorado to compete for a prestigious spot on the American Paralympics Team. The racing kicks-off at Bear Creek Lake Park in Morrison on Friday, June 15 with a 14 kilometer individual time trial, and culminates in a fast, short-course criterium in Curtis Park in downtown Denver on Sunday. Paralympians will also compete in a road race on Saturday at the State Patrol Training course in Golden.
