COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Cycling announced today the 2019 USA Cycling National Championships schedule. With races from coast-to-coast, the country’s best riders will compete across each discipline to win the U.S. title. The 2019 National Championship schedule begins in March, and continues with at least one championship nearly every month, including races at the junior, collegiate, amateur, elite and masters levels.
“The USA Cycling National Championships bring together the top racers in the U.S. who are all racing for the honor of wearing the Stars and Stripes jersey and being crowned national champion,” said so many riders at every level to realize their dreams of competing on the national stage,” said Derek Bouchard-Hall, USA Cycling President & CEO. “The races are guaranteed to be thrilling and rewarding to watch. And, for the elite-level riders, the 2019 National Championships will be key with the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics one year away.”
The first National Championship of 2019 – the USA Cycling Elite BMX Nationals – will be held in March at the Rock Hill BMX Supercross Track in Rock Hill, S.C. The Mountain Bike National Championships move out west and take over the Winter Park Resort in Colorado in July. Riders across multiple age groups will be racing in the home of USA Cycling, Colorado Springs, Colo., on parts of the 1986 UCI Road World Championships course in August. The junior, elite and masters level track National Championships return to the VELO Sports Center in Carson, Calif., and the US PRO Road Championships are back on the hills of Knoxville, Tenn., next summer. The year closes with the December’s USA Cycling Cyclocross Nationals in Tacoma, Wash.
“The USA Cycling National Championships are an incredible opportunity for so many riders at every level to realize their dreams of competing on the national stage,” said Chuck Hodge, USA Cycling Vice President of Operations. “The races are also a chance for cities and cycling communities around the country to come together and watch America’s best riding at their best.
