News

Colorado Springs, Colo. (Nov. 4, 2011) — USA Cycling is excited to announce the beginning of the 2011 USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Calendar (CXNC).

The calendar, which spans five races, begins with the Fall Back Cross Race in Colorado Springs, Colo. The calendar continues on Nov. 13 with the 25th Outdoors Inc Cyclocross Championships in Memphis, Tenn., before continuing with the Super Cross Cups 1 and 2 in Long Island, N.Y. on Nov. 19-20, and culminating on Dec. 4 in Mason, Ohio with theKings CX Weekend.

The purpose of the CXNC is to recognize top domestic events and provide them with the opportunity to achieve UCI recognition. Those races that seek UCI inscription and inclusion on the
United States International Cyclo-cross Calendar (USICX) must first be part of the CXNC for at least one year.

Among the requirements for inclusion on the CXNC is an elite cash purse, as well as the agreement to submit race results to USA Cycling within 24 hours for proper rankings calculation.

The 2012-13 CXNC event application will be available on this page in late 2011.
