“While this event is a benefit to our members and a long-awaited addition to the national championship calendar, we are not using a penny of member dues to fund the prize pool, nor are we diverting funds from grassroots racing programs. 100 % of the prizes will be funded by entry fees and sponsorship,” said Brendan Quirk, director of USA Cycling.
