If you are unable to register please contact your Conference Director. Conference Director contact information can be found here.

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-UP PROCEDURE

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.

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.

As you're making your travel plans, keep in mind that USA Cycling members are eligible for travel-related discounts on airfare, lodging and bike shipping from partners such as United Airlines and Hertz, among others. Visit our Member Benefits page to learn more about these savings opportunities.
