There are seven possible ways for riders to qualify to compete in the cross-country competitions, and these are outlined in the qualification standards and procedures document.
Please check the qualified riders list before you register for a race. Riders registering for a race they have not qualified for will forfeit their registration fee and be removed from the registered riders list. All riders will be verified for qualification based on the qualified riders list or race results posted from qualification events.
Important Registration Information
Pro riders are automatically qualified in their Pro discipline. Pro riders cannot race down into their age groups. Additionally, U23 riders should be aware that they can sign up for either the U23 race or the elite race, but not both.
Please don’t hesitate to contact USA Cycling’s National Events Director Kelli Lusk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 719.434.4285 with any questions.
Looking forward to seeing you in Sun Valley!
