COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (October 30, 2023) — USA Cycling is thrilled to unveil the highly anticipated schedule for the 2024 USA Cycling National Championships. With events spanning multiple cycling disciplines, the 2024 season promises to showcase some of the best races in the United States. These events are expected to draw thousands of cyclists and fans from around the country, all vying for the coveted national championship titles.

“The 2024 National Championships will be a testament to the passion and dedication of our members. They offer opportunity for everyone. To some, it’s an act of courage and ambition to merely participate. To others, Nationals are a critical step towards Olympic and World Championship dreams. Nationals are where lifelong memories are made, and we’re excited to showcase our most important events in such phenomenal communities,” said USA Cycling’s President and CEO, Brendan Quirk.

Riders will see some modifications to the 2024 event schedule, specifically with the road events. As previously announced, the Pro Road National Championships will now host the Junior 17-18 and Under-23 events, in addition to the Elite categories. The remaining Junior events and the entirety of the Masters events (ages 11-16 and 35+) will combine in Augusta, Ga. in late July.

Historically, there has been crossover with Category 1 Men competing at both Amateur Road and Pro Road Nationals. To address this, the Cat 1 Men’s Road Race, Criterium, and Time Trial have been eliminated. Cat 1 racers will still be eligible to compete in Pro Road as part of a Domestic Elite Team or through a petition process for Cat 1 riders.
