USAC posted details for the 2017 Masters Nationals. USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships - USA Cycling
I used to live down there, so I know the area well.
The crit course is in downtown Augusta. It is wide and flat. I think it's going to be a really nice course. If you are an architecture fan, IM Pei designed the Chamber of Commerce building in the middle of Broad Street as well as the depressed parking lots, blue triangle top of one of the Lamar building, and the James Brown Arena.
The road course is rolling, but I don't think there's anything too big or steep. The course is a loop on Fort Gordon, so there won't be much traffic. Still, you'll need to go through an Army base checkpoint to get on base, which used to require drivers license and a quick car inspection.
I used to play golf on base there.
Anyway, after the disaster last year - I crashed out of the crit - I wasn't planning to go back this year since it was no longer just an hour away. But given the courses, and the number of friends I still have down there, if I can get my fitness up, I may go back.
One other thing, if you will be flying there, fly into Atlanta or Charlotte. It's a two to two and a half hour drive from Atlanta, about two and a half hours from Charlotte. Flying in to Augusta is usually a disaster.
