Just five years ago, there were no virtual cycling championships to contest - neither on a national level nor on a global scale. But the virtual sports world is booming, so much so that USA Cycling felt the need to lay down some criteria of who can compete in the 2024 Esports National Cycling Championship and vie for the increasingly coveted stars-and-stripes avatar kit.

Previously, anyone could register for the USA Cycling Esports National Cycling Championship but for the January event, championship hopefuls are required to participate in at least one qualifying race.
