The Early Years

The Amateur Bicycle League of America was the forerunner of the USCF. The ABLA crowned the first US National Champion in 1963. At the time the governing body of US cycling was a volunteer organization run out of a one room office in New York City. This event ran annually until 1969 when it was discontinued and forgotten.

When the event resumed in 1975 it was thought to be the first ever US championship event in this discipline. In 1990 the earlier races were finally recognized through the efforts of Nestor Evancevich.

Thanks go out to Tyger Johnson, the first ever US National Cyclocross Champion, for this information.
