The Bear Creek Challenge is bigger and better this year. Bear Creek will be hosting the 2023 & 2024 USAC XC National Championships once again so this race will be a preview of nationals.
We plan on running the same course for this race as nationals. There will be multiple courses at nationals, and we plan on running the full national amateur course for Pro, Cat 1 & 2. This will include part of the heckle pit. Cat 3 & 4 will run the slightly shorter amateur course that does not include the heckle pit. Nationals wants to mimic UCI courses which means shorter laps in a tighter space with signature features and easy access to spectators. That means a shorter course with more laps. I am confident you will like what we came up with. We had a few locals test it out and they really liked it.
Online registration here.
