Cyclo-Cross US National Championships

The Cyclo-cross National Championships are underway in Madison. The course conditions seem to be a moving target things seem to change both daily and hourly. Some racers have experienced cold temps, snow and icy ruts. Others have had moderate temps, which melted the snow and exposed a bit more mud. Now it’s gone totally Belgian with rain, mud and slop! That’s cross racing for you. Gotta plan for every condition and embrace the challenges that come with them.
Chicago area riders are doing well against the rest of the nation. Congratulations to all who have raced and good luck to those getting ready to go! For race results and a schedule of the remaining races click here http://www.usacycling.org/2013/cyclo-cross-nationals.
