Key Players:

Pre-Event Info:

  • The best resource to stay abreast of the course conditions is our frequently updated “Preview of the Nationals Course, from Snow-Covered Kickers to Icy Sand Pits.” There are photos that show the course evolving day to day as well as videos and written course descriptions. Stay up to date!
  • Speaking of the course, want a sneak peek? We snagged some helmet cam footage of Badger Cross, a race in early December that tested out the Nationals course. There wasn’t snow, and temperatures were only in the low teens, but it offers a pretty good idea of what we’re all in for. As Promoter Tom Schuler said, “We will be having a “test” event, Badger CX, on December 10th and 11th at the venue. This is the final race weekend in the race series and should be a great preview of the course. We expect by that weekend that the ground might be frozen and people can expect to have similar conditions come Nationals time.”
  • Can’t watch a helmet cam video without getting dizzy? If you’re one of the people who’d rather read about the course in a step-by-step guide complete with “what if the weather does …” scenarios (like some of us at Cyclocross Magazine prefer to do!), check out Ted Burns’ treatise on the course, complete with some staggering photos.
  • Tom Schuler also talked to us about the race in general, and had some pretty interesting information and tips for racers. For example, “My hunch … is that there are two things that will be determining factors. One is the weather: the ground and snow conditions, and the other is the hill. If it’s icy or snowy, the hill will be difficult. It won’t be muddy, it will be solid ground. I think we do three passes of the hill per lap, not all the way to the top but a good way up. The hill is much more significant than anything that was seen in Bend.”
  • Bringing the family? Check out Bicycles and Icicles, which features some great non-race events over the course of the week.
  • Cyclocross Night in Madison! Start making party plans for Friday, January 6th, now.
  • Registration opened on November 4th, and it closes in just a few days on December 28th. So if you haven’t reg’ed yet, get on it! As was previously announced, call-ups at the 2012 Cyclocross National Championships will be determined by a rider’s USA Cycling ranking. In order to maintain call-up positions using their USA Cycling ranking, riders MUST pre-register online. Participants who register in Madison will be called up in random order behind all of the seeded rows. However, the non-UCI classes will still observe the 2010 winner of that particular age group, the 2010 national champion from a younger age group moving up to the next age group, and the top-seven finishers from 2010, even if they register on-site.
  • How did Madison end up hosting Nationals, anyway? Find out in by reading the news when it was first released.
