US cyclo-cross racers who were waiting to see the map of the newly designed course for the national championships before registering can now download one from the race web site: www.kccrossnationals.com. The site also features a video preview of the course. But organizers encourage people to act fast as online registration closes this Sunday night.

"Online registration closes this Sunday night at Midnight," said race director Bill Marshall. "The long range forecast is looking sweet and gas is cheap!"

Organizers are hopeful that the weather will be more enjoyable for everyone compared to last year, which saw a week of ice storms almost cancel the event, followed by a Saturday of frozen conditions and a slightly warmer Sunday resulting in a mud fest.

SRAM Neutral Support has once again signed on to support all riders entered in the championships, likely again amid the soothing smell of hot apple cider.
