With the Cyclocross World Championships coming up in a little more than two weeks, USA Cycling announced the rosters of riders that will represent the USA in Bieles, Luxembourg. Some of the roster selections were automatic based on continental and national championship wins others received automatic bids based on current standings in the UCI rankings. Other riders were selected by USA Cycling selection committee based on results this year at nationals and other top events.
