RICHMOND, Va. — Thursday is not a race day, but rather a trial day on the Road Circuit course. The road closures that go into effect from 9 a.m. to approximately 2 p.m. will be the same roads that close Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as the Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championship races.
Richmond City schools get out of school early on Thursday, and are off on Friday.
The race course only winds through Richmond and will shut down neighborhoods in the Fan, some of Broad Street, downtown, Shockoe Bottom, and Church Hill.
