USA Cycling Elite and Junior Track National Championships
USA Cycling Masters Track National Championships
This week we would have been enjoying our fourth year in Knoxville, TN while providing everyone with great coverage of our Pro Road races. Instead, we’re still working from home, trying to piece together what we can for the remainder of the year as we know so many of you are.
We have continued to work with our partner Winter Park Resort, along with local government agencies, on Mountain Bike Nationals. We are working on several options to meet the mass gathering requirements set by the State and County. To meet these requirements, we are exploring running downhill, enduro and cross-country only- in time trial format on two separate weekends. Aside from our obligations to meet local permitting requirement, we want to make sure that we offer our participants and event that is as safe as possible. We have indicated the dates below and hope to have an update within a week’s time.
As we continue conversations with other venues, municipalities and health departments we may need to alter the format of our other National Championships to abide by regulations, as well as keep all riders safe. We should have more information in the coming weeks and will keep you informed as these conversations evolve.
We recognize that changes such as these may dishearten those who have been holding out hope for a sense of normalcy that comes with a regular training schedule and a quest for Nationals. We and our Local Organizing Committees have worked through countless options for our National Championships and this is one additional option that may be needed for safety and to meet regulations.
We want to be clear that even though events may be currently postponed, if we cannot reasonably ensure the safety of our members, volunteers and host communities we will not run a National Championship.
We will continue to provide status updates over the next couple of months and we will not open any registration until we are confident we can successfully and safely hold an event.
Please continue to ride safe, enjoy each day in the saddle and we’ll be in touch.
