USA Cycling Adds Mountaincross National Championship

Yesterday USA Cycling announced that it would add another event to the Angel Fire Chile Challenge event taking place in New Mexico at the end of May. A one-day mountaincross National Championship will be held for American Pros only. This race is slated in addition to the already scheduled UCI/NMBS/MSC mountaincross race open international riders as well.

On the upside, Pro riders get one more chance to earn some National Championship-level UCI points. On the downside, only Pros get to compete for a National Championship jersey in mountaincross this year. There will still be Dual Slalom National Championship in Vermont later this summer.
