As expected, USA Cycling announced today that the U.S. Cyclocross National Championships will move back to December, starting with December 2018. This means that 2018 will get two championships. The first in January in Reno and the second in Louisville, Kentucky, in December. Along with the announcement to move Nationals back to December, USAC also announced Louisville and Tacoma, Washington, will host the 2018 (v2.0) and 2019 CXNats.
For Crosshairs Radio, Episode 68, I had the opportunity to chat with Micah Rice, USAC Vice President of National Events, about the move to December and the new locations on the latest Crosshairs Radio, which is posted now. In that conversation we do a deeper dive into the reasons why the change was made to January, six years ago, and what prompted the move back to December. We also talk about the new locations and other cyclocross issues like the state of the PROCX.
