After 24 years in Downers Grove, Illinois, the USA Cycling Professional Criterium National Championship will move about 26 miles this year, to the northern Chicago suburb of Glencoe, Illinois.
The race will be held on August 14, a Saturday — the Downers Grove race had traditionally been held on Sundays.
The event will be managed by Special Events Management, which has produced the Downers Grove race since 1987. AT&T will be the title sponsor.
“We look forward to Glencoe and a new course for our fastest and most exciting road national championship,” said Sean Petty, USA Cycling chief operating officer. “We also appreciate AT&T’s support of this great event and we’re confident Special Events Management will continue to organize a first-class event.”
The professional men’s road race and time trial championships will be held September 18-19 in Greenville, South Carolina.
