GCN (Global Cycling Network) and Eurosport will broadcast for the 2021 USCX Series. GCN will showcase the UCI Men’s and Women’s Elite racing to a worldwide audience on their live-streaming digital platform, and Eurosport has chosen 21 European countries for a live, linear broadcast of the C1 events.
“We are so excited to partner with GCN and Eurosport to bring this exciting cyclocross series to the world,” said Jingle Cross Executive Director John Meehan. “Both Eurosport and GCN will bring a huge level of visibility to the athletes, the sport, the series and our communities, and the sponsors that support cyclocross.”
Rochester Cyclocross Executive Director Scott Page added, “the value that this media partnership brings for both the series and US cyclocross is exceptional – having a true world stage for the elite athletes is tremendous.”
“I cannot wait for the season to start in Rochester,” said Canada’s Maghalie Rochette, winner of the 2019 World Cup in Iowa City. “This is going to be a huge season for cyclocross in North America with USCX Series, three World Cups, and the World Championships. The USCX Series will be great for the growth of cyclocross. The series is not just for professional riders — all cyclocross amateurs in the USA will have a series to chase. I feel like the CX Fever will be strong this year, and the fact that the USCX Series will be televised is probably the biggest step we could take to bring North American cyclocross to a whole new level. Plus, the fact that the races will be televised live in Europe, the birthplace of cyclocross, is huge.”
The USCX Cyclocross Series starts in Rochester, New York, at Rochester Cyclocross September 25-26, then moves to the Charm City event in Baltimore, Maryland on October 2-3. Two weeks later, the series continues in Iowa City, Iowa, at the three-day Jingle Cross Cycling Festival October 15-17. Jingle Cross will also host a UCI World Cup on the same weekend. Finally, the USCX series wraps up at Kings CX in Cincinnati, Ohio, on October 23-24, with final results awarded on Sunday, October 24 in Cincinnati.
All events in the series will feature men’s and women’s professional cycling each afternoon and amateur cycling each morning. Amateur divisions are also part of the series, and athletes will compete within their respective amateur or pro category, accumulating points.
All events plan on having food trucks, beer gardens, music, professional announcers, and children’s activities. Covid-19 protocols will be in place at each event following the requirements and guidance of the UCI, USACycling, and local governments.
