Bend to Host USA Cycling XC and Enduro National Champs, 2015 and 2016 

Mt. Bachelors trails will be two years old when the races come to town.
  • Mt. Bachelor's trails will be two years old when the races come to town.

Visit Bend is doing a good job with the bike-race-hosting thing. It was just announced that our city would be the site of the USA Cycling 2015 and 2016 cross-country and enduro national championship mountain bike races.

What's most interesting about the news, though, is that BOTH races will be at Mt. Bachelor on the mountain's new trails (which, by late summer 2015, will be a mature two years old). That means the XC event will likely be a lap race, climbing up a mix of fire roads and singletrack and descending on new downhill trails. Should be fun and exceptionally tough—a lot more steep climbing than anywhere else in Central Oregon.
