    cx worlds

    This came from a cx list serve I am on -->

    from velonews.com

    ________________________________________________________________
    The United States could host the world cyclo-cross championships
    within five years and will likely see a World Cup stop as soon as
    next year.

    Peter Van den Abeele, the UCI's cyclo-cross coordinator, says a world
    championships and a World Cup stop in the United States is a real
    possibility.

    "I will be traveling to America and seeing about what kind of
    interest there is there," Van den Abeele told VeloNews. "I would like
    to see a World Cup race in USA sooner, maybe even next season, and
    why not the world championships? Cyclo-cross is really growing in the
    United States and I'd like to take the world's there, but maybe not
    until 2009 or 2010."

    Van den Abeele joined the UCI in December, 2003 to help invigorate
    cyclo-cross and streamline the sport with a newly structured World
    Cup schedule. He said expanding the sport beyond its hotbed in
    Belgium and Holland is the next natural step, with the United States
    playing a big role in the future.

    This would be awesome. We had Vervecken out here last year for a Sat/Sunday race & he really seemed to dig the course we had in Tacoma. Said it had world cup potential. Of course he won both races but thats not a surprise.

    Yeah, Erwin's been over a couple times, Pontoni came over during the SuperCup, and some of the younger guys came over before that. I suspect they wuld try and keep in on the East Coast to minimize travel time for the Euros.

    A World Cup race in the US would be a good "warmup" for it!

    That would be cool. I wonder where they're scoping potential sites?

    Well, I'm thinking I should round out my skills, but I'll be training hard this winter. We'll see what happens.
