7 Nov, 2019
USA Cycling has announced the 2020 USA Cycling National Championships schedule. Riders from throughout the country will compete to win one of over 600 Stars and Stripes jerseys in their respective categories with racing spanning coast-to-coast.
The schedule starts in early April with National Championships being contested almost every month in junior, collegiate, amateur, elite and master categories.
“Every year, the USA Cycling National Championships brings together the best athletes in the country who have spent all year preparing for their chance to wear the Stars and Stripes jersey and win a national title,” said Chuck Hodge, USA Cycling Chief of Racing and Events. “What we love about bringing these national championships to life is that they are not only an opportunity for riders to compete on the national stage, but it brings the host cities and cycling community together.
“2019 was an impressive year watching our athletes inspire us across all disciplines. We are excited to return in 2020 to some amazing venues as well as introduce our community to some new and exciting destinations and are looking forward to the thrilling races ahead.”
