Liberty Mutual brings Cyclo-Cross Nationals to New England

Liberty Mutual Group, a leading global insurance provider with headquarters in New England, ha signed on to be the title sponsor of the 2005 U.S. National Cyclocross Championships in Roger Williams Park in Providence, Rhode Island from December 9-11, 2005.

Promoters expect to host nearly 1,400 competitors to this three-day event, where national champion jerseys will be awarded in 25 categories. Each day's final race will be a featured event, with collegiate men racing Friday, pro-elite men on Saturday, and pro-elite women on Sunday. Sunday will also feature the Liberty Cup, a non-championship invitational event for men.

For the past three seasons, the "Cross Nats" have been held on the West Coast, in seasonably wet and muddy conditions. While the weather in December in Rhode Island may be fickle, riders can expect colder and faster conditions.

"We had an extensive search for a venue that lasted more than a year," said Tom Stevens, race director. "After looking at seven venues, we picked Providence. We feel this park will provide the best course for both riders and spectators."

The 2005 U.S. National Cyclo-Cross Championships is a production of the New England Cyclo-Cross Committee. For more information, visit
