All collegiate teams must bring this form, filled out by their school registrar, with them to on-site packet pick-up. Riders will NOT be allowed to race without this form!

Call-ups Procedure

As was previously announced, call-ups at the 2012 Cyclo-cross National Championships will be determined by a rider’s USA Cycling ranking.

In order to maintain their call-up position using their USA Cycling ranking, a rider MUST pre-register online. Participants who register in Madison will be called up in random order behind all of the seeded rows. However, the non-UCI classes will still observe the 2010 winner of that particular age group, 2010 national champion from younger age group moving up to the next age group, and top-seven finishers from 2010, even if they register on-site.

UCI rules mandate that riders must pre-register online in order to maintain their call-up position for junior 17-18 men, U23 and elite categories.

Preliminary seeding orders will be decided based on USA Cycling rankings on January 3. The rankings will be based on all of the results received and confirmed by USA Cycling. Final start lists and seeding for each race will be posted by 9 p.m. the night before.

Travel and Accommodations

The host hotel for the event will be the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Madison-Verona. A special discount for Cyclo-cross National Championships participants has been arranged at this location in addition to four other preferred hotels in the area. More information can be found here.
