USA Cycling has announced the 2023 USA Cycling Cross-Country Mountain Bike National Championship will take place July 5–9 at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie, Pennsylvania.
Bear Creek Mountain Resort previously was home to the 2013 and 2014 Cross-Country Mountain Bike National Championships.
“We are thrilled to have USA Cycling Mountain Bike Nationals back at Bear Creek,” said Gary Kline, director of marketing and guest experience at Bear Creek Resort. “Our beautiful resort, challenging course and amazing cycling community make this partnership a perfect fit. We can’t wait to welcome all of the competitors back to Bear Creek.”
After being at elevation for the past three years, riders will have the chance to challenge themselves at Bear Creek Mountain Resort not only this summer but also at the 2024 National Championships.
“Riders have asked us to look for a venue at sea level and many have been hoping we’d bring the event back to the east coast,” said Tara McCarthy, USA Cycling director of national events. “Returning to Bear Creek Mountain Resort allows us to build upon the success from our 2013 and 2014 partnership and gives us access to over a third of the population of the United States.”
The USA Cycling Gravity Mountain Bike National Championship will take place either July 12–16 or July 19–23 and the Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championship is October 12–15, both at locations to be determined. The Gravel Fall 2023 dates and location are coming soon.
