We’ve become very close with USA Cycling, and are looking forward to seeing 2023’s exciting event here in Knoxville.”

To conclude the 2023 season, Cyclocross Nationals will return to the 2018 venue at Joe Creason Park for a week of racing in Louisville, Ky., continuing the CX Nationals reunion tour. “Louisville has a long history of hosting international and national cycling events. We are honored to have the opportunity to again host this national championship with elite athletes, officials, and spectators converging on Louisville from across the U.S.,” said Louisville Sports Commission Vice President of Sports Development Greg Fante. “This event provides an excellent opportunity to showcase our community and will generate significant economic impact through inbound sports travel, which is especially welcome during the winter months.” Director of National Events, Tara McCarthy, said, “We’re excited to be returning to some tried and true venues where the racing has always been of the highest caliber. Our partners in those cities always work with us to provide a top-notch event experience for participants. We’re also excited to be working with new venues like Chewacla State Park home of the 1988 NORBA Nationals.”

“For so many of our members, racing in a National Championship is the peak of their season. We’re encouraged by the growth we’ve seen in participation in 2022, and we’re excited for this trend to continue in 2023,” said Brendan Quirk, President & CEO of USA Cycling.
