The Venue – Rancho San Rafael Park

Don’t expect severe weather for the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships this weekend. In fact, bring your sunscreen.

The event will take place in the west coast mountain town of Reno, Nevada, an altitude of 1,500m, and noted as having more than 300 days of sunshine each year. It is expected to be dry this weekend and there will be milder weather conditions than what most cyclo-cross racers are used to in January.

In short, the conditions could make for dry and therefore fast cyclo-cross racing.

Compton goes for 14

Can anyone match Hyde?
