In an email sent Tuesday, USA Cycling notified UCI-licensed American cyclocross racers that a petition process will be offered if they do not qualify to race national championships.
Elite racers automatically qualify to compete if they meet either of two requirements: Riders must hold one or more UCI point; or, riders must be ranked in the top-90 in the USA Cycling Pro CX standings.
On December 10, USA Cycling will announce the riders who have met these standards.
Starting that same date, USA Cycling will offer the opportunity for elite riders to submit a petition to race nationals, if they did not meet either requirement.
According to the communication, “A limited number of additional petitioning riders will be granted a discretionary start in the elite men’s and women’s races via this start petition process. Rider acceptance will be based off of past national championship and UCI cyclocross race results. The petition link will be posted December 10 on the USA Cycling cyclocross national championships webpage. All petitions must be submitted by the deadline of December 20 and the accepted riders will be notified on December 22.”
