Cyclocross Magazine’s Brian Nelson was at the venue bright and early before the Austin City Police started turning away racers and spectators and USA Cycling announced the racing was postponed until Monday.
While walking around on the safety of pavement, Nelson managed to capture a few images of the day’s chaos and conditions at Zilker Park. See the 2015 Cyclocross National Championships Day 5 Photo Gallery below, and navigate with the arrows.
USA Cycling officials huddled throughout the morning in attempt to prevent the worst case (cancellation) from happening. In the end, after briefly announcing the race was cancelled, they announced the postponement until tomorrow.
