CXNATS Schedule (Already?)

If you’re one of those people who has complained about not knowing the schedule for cyclocross nationals until it’s too late to make plans, this post is for you. The first UCI C1 cyclocross race hasn’t even happened. That will take place this weekend in Rochester. Yet USA Cycling posted, today, the schedule for 2018 U.S. Cyclocross Nationals No. 2, that will take place December 10-16 in Louisville, KY. Talk about being on the ball! You can now make all of your arrangements months in advance. I can only imagine how long the Facebook thread complaining about the schedule is going to get with all of this lead time …

Jokes aside, here’s your 2018 CXNATS Ver 2 schedule ( and to keep everyone honest, there is the caveat posted on the schedule that it is “subject to change.”) See you in Louisville, cyclocross friends:

  1. This is literally finals week; I don’t know who thought mid-December was a better idea, but they were wrong.
