Team USA's Shawn Morelli won gold in the C4 time trial on day two of the 2017 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships. 

On the opening day of the 2017 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, Team USA brought home a trio of silver medals. Ryan Boyle (Monroe, Connecticut) and Jill Walsh (Syracuse, New York) each finished in second place in the T2 time trial, while Will Groulx (Portland, Oregon) also earned silver in the H2 time trial. 

"It was a good day. It's a good course, it's a challenging course which separates people, which is a good thing," said Walsh. "I left what I had out there. It was a very close race - the closest I've had. I'm proud of myself and happy with my race."

On the second day of competition, Shawn Morelli (Saegertown, Pennsylvania) claimed the world title in the C4 time trial. Team USA added two more medals, including a silver from Sam Bosco (Upland, California) in the C5 time trial and a bronze from Billy Lister (Cold Spring Harbor, New York) in the C1 time trial.

Team USA added two medals on the third day of competition, with Groulx and Walsh each claiming their second medals of the event. Groulx finished second in the H2 road race, while Walsh placed third in the T1 road race. 

The final day of competition featured two world titles for Team USA. Morelli claimed her second gold of the event with a win in the C4 road race, while Allison Jones (Colorado Springs, Colorado) picked up the gold in the C2 road race. The team handcycle relay of Matt Updike (Denver, Colorado), Freddie de los Santos (Hopewell Junction, New York) and Will Groulx (Portland, Oregon) combined for the silver medal to close out the competition.
