Join us this Sunday January 8th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm for the Elite Women and Elite Men National CX Championship races on the big wall!

Thirty-four national titles are on the line in the first week of the New Year as the nation’s top cyclocross racers head to Hartford, Conn. for the 2017 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships, Jan. 3-8. The historic Connecticut River will set the backdrop for nearly 2,000 racers to compete at Riverfront Recapture’s Riverside Park adjacent to downtown Hartford.

National champions will be crowned in the junior, collegiate, U23, masters, and elite ranks, while non-championship racing will also be available for several groups including juniors 10 years and under. For masters racers, multiple age groups will be offered up to the 60+ group for women and 70+ group for men. Competition opens with several days of amateur racing and culminates on Sunday with U23 and elite competitions.

Among the athletes who will be on hand to defend their titles are 2016 elite national champions Jeremy Powers (Easthampton, Mass./Aspire Racing) and Katie Compton (Colorado Springs, Colo./KFC Racing p/b Trek Panache). Powers will set his sights on a fifth national title while Compton will go after her 13th consecutive win in the elite women’s field.
