The USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships are back in action this week through December 12 in Wheaton, Illinois, after a shuttered ‘cross season in 2020 across the country due the coronavirus pandemic. The event returns to the Midwest for the first time since Madison, Wisconsin hosted the event in 2012 and 2013. 

A total of 34 national titles, along with a collection of non-championship races, will be decided at Wheaton’s Cantigny Park, which across 500 acres is home to a championship golf course and a military tank display with the First Division Museum that pays homage to US Army soldiers from World War I to present time.
