GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) The paracycling road world championships are coming to the United States.
Greenville has been chosen to host the event in 2014. The selection means the U.S. will host cycling world championships in consecutive years - the 2015 road worlds have already been slated for Richmond, Va.
Los Angeles will host this year's paracycling track world championships next week.
Paracycling comprises four groups: blind and visually impaired riders, people with cerebral palsy, locomotor disabilities and handcycling. They're further broken down into categories for men and women in all the age categories defined by the UCI, cycling's world governing body.
The events in Greenville will include men's and women's road races, men's and women's individual time trials and the handcycling relay.
The world championships have been held since 1994.
