Dear member:

Online registration for the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships will close at 11:59 p.m. EST on Jan. 4. So if you're planning to race in Madison, Jan. 9-13, you should register now!

Current registration prices are $65 for juniors, collegiate, and non-championship racers, and $85 for U23, masters, elite and singlespeed racers. However, if you wait for onsite registration, the fees will be $80 for non-championship races; $90 for juniors and collegiate races; and $125 for U23 Masters, Elite, and Singlespeed competitions. There will be NO DAY-OF REGISTRATION.

Save money by registering now through your My USA Cycling account. While you're in there, make sure to renew your racing license for 2013 as well. All riders must have a valid 2013 USA Cycling annual license to compete in any championship race at the Cyclo-cross National Championships.

Please make sure to renew your license for 2013 BEFORE arriving at packet pick-up or onsite registration.



On-site registration and packet pick-up will open on Tuesday, January 8 at Pasqual's Cantina which is located across the street from the event site at:

100 Cross Country Road
Verona, WI 53593.

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 for the 2013 Cyclo-cross National Championships will be determined by a rider’s USA Cycling ranking as of January 7, 2013 at 11:59 central time.The rankings will be based on all results received and confirmed by USA Cycling.

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 as 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. However, the non-UCI classes will still observe the 2011 winner of that particular age group, 2011 national champion from younger age group moving up to the next age group, and top-seven finishers from 2011, even if they register on-site.

Final start lists and seeding for each race will be posted by 9 p.m. the night before. For more information on eligibility, rules, and call-ups, click here.


A special discount for Cyclo-cross National Championships participants has been arranged at five preferred hotels in the area. More information can be found here.
