The 2010 domestic cyclocross season is already under way, and once again VeloNews.com is your one-stop shop for racing news, results, photos and video.

The North American UCI calendar began last weekend at the Nittany Lion Cross event, held at the Lehigh Valley Velodrome, with Laura Van Gilder (C3-Athletes Serving Athletes) and Luke Keough (Champion Systems) taking wins.

The season continues this weekend in the Pacific Northwest with Starcrossed, held Saturday in Redmond, Washington, and the Rad Racing Gran Prix, held in Lakewood, Washington. Heavy rain and muddy conditions are expected for both events.

VeloNews.com begins its in-depth ’cross coverage next week at Interbike with the star-studded CrossVegas event. With a full editorial staff in attendance, VeloNews.com will provide extensive photos, race reports, rider interviews, pre- and post-race videos and tech coverage of the newest in ’cross gear.

From Vegas the domestic ’cross circus travels north and west to Madison, Wisconsin, for the opening round of the Greenware U.S. Grand Prix of Cyclocross.

And for the first time ever, in a partnership with CyclingDirt.org, VeloNews.com will offer live streaming video from the pro men’s and women’s USGP series, which also includes stops in Louisville, Kentucky — home of the 2013 world cyclocross championships — as well as Fort Collins, Colorado, and the series finale, in Portland, Oregon.

For every USGP event VeloNews.com will host the live race feed, while CyclingDirt.org will host race highlights as well as pre-race and post-race videos.

VeloNews.com will also follow the country’s other top series, the North American Cyclocross Trophy, which begins this weekend with Starcrossed and the Rad Racing GP and includes stops in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Boulder, Colorado, and Southampton, New York, the series finale.

VeloNews.com will also bring race reports, results and photos from the eight-round UCI World Cup, which begins October 17 in Aigle, Switzerland, and concludes January 23 in Hoogerheide, The Netherlands, one week before the world championships in St-Wendel, Germany.

Prior this year’s cyclocross season we spoke with most of the domestic ’cross scene’s major players, including Tim Johnson, Ryan Trebon and Jeremy Powers. Look for a chat with the domestic women later today.

There are 53 UCI events scheduled in the U.S. and three in Canada for the 2010-11 cyclocross season. Here’s a look at the nation’s two top series and other select events; a full schedule of UCI events held in the U.S. this season is posted on USA Cycling’s Web site (.pdf).
