    Hundreds of professional and amateur bicyclists will speed along streets in downtown Grafton as the Tour of America’s Dairyland races come to town this weekend.

    The 13th annual Giro d’Grafton on Saturday, June 22, is the third stop on the 11-day race tour.

    Races will feature men’s and women’s professional and amateur racers. 

    Events will also include a variety of family activities.

    Bike races will begin at 11:25 a.m. with a para-cycling national championship and continue to 9 p.m. with a twilight race.

    There will also be a Big Wheel race and mascot races.

    Circuit riders will be awarded points for their finishes in the races, to be combined with those earned in other races in the series.

    The bicyclists also compete for thousands of dollars in prizes as they race each circuit.

    Spectators typically gather around the start and finish lines — the intersection of Beech Street and Wisconsin Avenue — to watch the final sprints.

    There will be vendors and local shops that will feature specials.

    Live music is tentatively set at the event.
