The 2023 USA Cycling Amateur Roanoke National Championships for ages 11 through 22 are returning to the Roanoke region June 14 through the 17 – with some new wrinkles. The indvidual time trial race has been moved to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the road races will originate from Franklin County’s Waid Park.
