All collegiate teams must bring this form, filled out by their school registrar, with them to on-site packet pick-up. Riders will NOT be allowed to race without this form!

CALL-UP PROCEDURE

Call-ups for the 2013 Cyclo-cross National Championships will be determined by a rider’s USA Cycling ranking as of January 7, 2013 at 11:59 central time.The rankings will be based on all results received and confirmed by USA Cycling.

In order to maintain their call-up position using their USA Cycling ranking, a rider MUST pre-register online. Participants who register in Madison will be called up in random order behind all of the seeded rows as UCI rules mandate that riders must pre-register online in order to maintain their call-up position for junior 17-18 men, U23 and elite categories. However, the non-UCI classes will still observe the 2011 winner of that particular age group, 2011 national champion from younger age group moving up to the next age group, and top-seven finishers from 2011, even if they register on-site.

Final start lists and seeding for each race will be posted by 9 p.m. the night before. For more information on eligibility, rules, and call-ups, click here.
