 USA Cycling Website

USA Cycling has announced that Mount Snow Resort in West Dover, Vermont will host the 2007 and 2008 USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships.  The two-year agreement brings the event to the east coast for the first time since the inception of a single-event national championship format in 2004.

Scheduled on the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) designated mountain bike national championship weekend, the 2007 edition will be held July 19-22.  Dates for 2008 have yet to be determined.  

Mount Snow has a solid and rich history of hosting world-class mountain bike events for nearly two decades,” commented Steve Johnson, chief executive officer of USA Cycling.  “The decision to award the national championships to Mount Snow was an easy one across the board.  The courses are traditionally challenging for all disciplines, the venue and organization is second to none, and an Eastern United States location is something that should be well received by our membership after three years in California .”  

The American-only, “winner-take-all” format will feature a full slate of disciplines and categories.  The event schedule, as well as qualifying events and procedures, will be announced at a later date.

The USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships is the latest high-profile event to come to Mount Snow .  A mainstay on the international mountain bike circuit, Mount Snow has hosted numerous world-class events including UCI World Cup, NORBA National Championships Series and National Mountain Bike Series events.  

Mount Snow Resort is honored to have been awarded the 2007-08 USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships,” commented Matthew Zogby, communications manager of Mount Snow Resort.  “We’re excited to again welcome the mountain bike community and thousands of competitive cyclists as they compete for the title of U.S. National Champion at what has historically been one of the top mountain bike venues in the country.”

Mount Snow Resort is set to host the third round of the 2006 National Mountain Bike Series this weekend. 

The 2006 USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships brought to you by X-Fusion will be held July 13-16 at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma , California as part of the Infineon Technologies Cougar Mountain Classic.   

The previous two editions were held at Mammoth Mountain Resort in Mammoth Lakes , California.
