31 August - 3 September
We are so looking forward to welcoming the Para-cycling world to Pietermaritzburg in 2017 and what makes things even more interesting is that when the event takes place here in Pietermaritzburg, it will have been two years since any World Championships jerseys would have been awarded. The event dates are set as 31 August to 3 September with 31 August and 1 September being set aside for the Time Trial competitions and 2-3 September is when the Road Races will be staged. The Time Trial competition will once again be staged in and around the Midmar Dam complex as it was in 2015 and the same Road Race route as used at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup events here in Pietermaritzburg in 2015 and 2016 will be used again. These routes are challenging to the riders but in both World Cup years have yielded fair results with the strongest and best in most instances climbing onto the podium.
