GRAFTON, Wis. - At the 2018 USA Cycling Para-cycling Criterium National Championships in Grafton, Wisconsin, Will Groulx (Portland, Oregon - H2) claimed the criterium national title in the H1-2 class, while David Randall (Bradenton, Florida - H3) placed first in the H3-5 classification.

In conjunction with Tour of America’s Dairyland, nearly 20 Para-cyclists raced for the national titles on a .85-mile criterium for 35 minutes.
