Get Your Bid In: Bring Masters Cyclocross Worlds to the US in 2011
The UCI’s Gerrit Middag is encouraging American promoters to put in a bid for the 2011-2013 events, and has provided us with the bidding guide and the application template to help build awareness of the possibility of bringing the event to the States.
The idea of the event coming to the states is certainly intriguing, as field sizes would be enormous compared to the historically Belgium-based event. Would we need field limits? Qualifications? Or a Braveheart-style mass start?
While a deadline has not been set yet, Middag said, “We will have some time to correctly evaluate some possible bids for the future.” For such a high-profile event, it’s not too early to start planning.
