2020 USA Cycling National Championship Update - April 16

By: Tara McCarthy  April 16, 2020

With the current COVID-19 crisis affecting our nation and all aspects of life, USA Cycling has been constantly assessing the safety and feasibility of events, including our National Championships. We understand the National Championships are the highlight of many of our members’ year, and those who race at Nationals carefully plan their training in addition to their travel and personal schedules.

As we work with the medical community and local organizing committees to manage the impacts of this crisis, we are evaluating how to best proceed with our National Championships in these challenging times.

Our National Championships fill an important part of a revised calendar along with a sense of normalcy, and we want to communicate our thought process and the steps we are considering for the events to remain viable.

We are using the following criteria to assess each National Championship: 

-       What is best for the safety of our participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators?

-       Impacts, both positive and negative, on our host communities.

-       Competition aspects – will competition be fairly intact with event modifications?

-       Scheduling impacts – other events, weather, school, etc.

-       Travel considerations for participants. 

Some of the actions we are considering for each National Championship are as follows:

-       Run the event at the scheduled time and location

-       Postponement

-       Change location

-       Modify event schedule

-       Consolidate and combine events

-       Cancel 

Below is the current status for each National Championship remaining in 2020, along with the next date we will send an update for each event. We recognize the below may prompt more questions than provide answers – as with many other parts of society, we are working in a fluid and changing environment and ask for your patience as we continue to evolve our decisions. We will not open any registration until we are confident we can successfully and safely hold an event. 

We will continue to provide as much information as possible in these uncertain times, while ensuring you and every member of our community remains safe and healthy.
