The organisers of the US Gran Prix of Cyclo-cross Portland Cup hinted last weekend that next year could see the return of the US Cyclo-cross championships to Oregon.

According to Cyclo-cross Magazine, the bid from Oregon comes from the town of Bend, about three hours southeast of Portland. Another bid has been submitted from eastern Washington, giving the Pacific Northwest a strong chance of hosting the national championships next year.
