One year before the United States hosts the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the country's federation is sending a quarter of its usual contingent to this year's Worlds in Oostende, Belgium, with no riders in the junior women or men's events or the U23 men's race because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Six riders will represent the United States on January 30 and 31, with four elite women, one U23 woman and one in the elite men's race although the country could have fielded up to 30 riders.
