Return of the USA Amateur National Championship Road Races to Hagerstown, Maryland

David T. Whitaker

Mark your calendars to see the best amateur road cyclists in the country compete for a Stars-and-Stripes Jersey this June. This marks the second year that the USA Cycling Amateur Road National Championships will be held in scenic Washington County, MD.

For four days in June, the next generation of American bicycle road racers are returning to the greater Hagerstown area, MD to race. Titles will be awarded for Individual Time Trial, Criterium, and Road Race in various age divisions and race categories.

In July 2018, racers and families from all over the U.S. came to the area and enjoyed the ambience of historic downtown Hagerstown. This year promises to be even better because, in addition to racing events, the organizers and a local bicycle club are planning several recreational and social rides associated with the races that weekend.

The 2019 Championship events will occur in this order over four days:

  1. June 20: Time Trial – MD 67, Boonsboro, MD
  2. June 21: Road Race, Day 1 – Clear Spring, MD
  3. June 22: Road Race, Day 2 – Clear Spring, MD
  4. June 23: Criterium – Downtown Hagerstown, MD

The official schedule will be published closer to the date of the event. Note registration for the USA Cycling Amateur Road National Championships will open approximately 60 days prior to the event. All registration is managed by USA Cycling.

“Everyone who bicycles in Maryland and the greater four state region owes it to their sport to come and make these National Championships even bigger and better in 2019! – Joe Jefferson, Director of Local Operations for the USA Cycling Amateur Road National Championships in Washington County  

Washington County offers the most elegant rural landscape as a back drop for cycling from gently rolling hills framed by mountains and overlaid with a patch work of family farms. The City of Hagerstown offers a world class setting for their Sunday criterium with a short course through a vibrant downtown urban area with restaurants and other race related activities and destinations. This is a picture perfect setting for national champion level bicycle racing.

PPTC will be coordinating rides with on the weekend of the event. Keep in touch for further updates on these rides.
