The Federation of Independent Associations for Cycling (FIAC) invites race organizers to host one or more of ten National Championships in 2005. Proposals will be considered for elite men's and women's championships in the following events: Stage Race, Hill Climb, Six-Day Track, Criterium, and Team Time Trial. Only established race organizers with a record of quality events will be considered.
These championships will be run under FIAC Racing Rules and only riders who hold an annual license from a FIAC member association will be eligible for championship placings, though others may be allowed to participate. FIAC will provide medals for the top three places and championship jerseys for the winners. To apply, fill out an www.fiac.us/natzapp.htm application and submit it by February 15, 2005.
FIAC supports racing programs that are independent of USA Cycling. For further information, go to www.fiac.us
