All of the cyclocross series (that I know of) take place in fall/early winter. Why is this?

I think it gets too snowy or cold in the middle of winter.
The US Nationals are the end of Dec. World championships are end of January. That leaves February/March to start preparing for the road season.

Also, the sport was designed as "off-season" training in Europe. The obstacles were designed to keep the speeds slow during the nasty winters. Man, I love the agony of cross!
