Promoters of the Liberty Mutual US national cyclocross championships have organised a special event for elite men with the Liberty Cup, a 'showcase for all the national champions' to be held December 11, right before the elite women's championship.
"Any national champion over the age of 15 will be invited to race with no entry fee," said Tom Stevens, race director. "The one caveat is that we ask them to wear their national championship jersey. If they do that we give them a front row start position. We'll pay a good prize list and reward the top masters and top under-23 finishers." It's expected that Jesse Anthony, Jeremy Powers, and Bjorn Selander will race, with 16-year-old Alex Coelho also making an appearance.
Registration for the Liberty Cup is open, and entry fees will be refunded to those who win their national titles. For more information about the Liberty Mutual US national cyclocross championships, visit the website at www.cyclocrossnationals.com
