USA Cycling to accept elite rider petitions for 2015 Cyclo-cross Nationals
On December 10, USA Cycling will announce the riders who have pre-qualified (top 90 riders in the overall USA Cycling Pro Cyclo-cross Calendar Rankings and any rider with one or more UCI points) to register for the elite men’s and women’s races at the 2015 USA Cycling Cyclo-Cross National Championships.
Due to this new eligibility rule for the elite races, starting Dec. 10 USA Cycling will offer a start petition opportunity for elite riders who have not met the pre-approved criteria.
A limited number of additional petitioning riders will be granted a discretionary start in the elite men’s and women’s races via this start petition process. Rider acceptance will be based off of past national championship and UCI cyclo-cross race results. The petition link will be posted Dec. 10 on the USA Cycling Cyclo-Cross National Championship event page. All petitions must be submitted by the deadline of Dec. 20 and the accepted riders will be notified on Dec. 22.
