Each collegiate cycling season ends with a national championship for which eligible riders and teams may qualify. Basic points about nationals include:
Conference allocations between teams and individuals are posted to the ECCC website and mailing list at the start of each season. Lists of qualifying riders are similarly posted immediately after the conference season championship (Easterns). To participate at nationals, riders must have their school registrar complete a form verifying their full-time status, and should budget some time to have this done. The form can be found on the Collegiate Road Nationals info page, which can be found on the USAC National Championships page.
Teams and riders interested in participating at nationals are strongly encouraged to join the conference mailing list. This is the best place to get timely updates and clarifications.
More general information and pointers to schedules, venues, and registration are available on the USAC National Championships page.
