The US CUP-XC IS AMERICA'S PREMIER MOUNTAIN BIKE SERIES.
The US Cup is America's premier professional mountain bike and cyclocross racing series. At these races, you will see national champions, Olympians and even world champions competing. Our goal is to produce the highest level of competition to allow athletes the opportunity to gain valuable UCI points and chase Olympic dreams. No other series in the US currently produces the caliber of racing like the US Cup.
For 2017, we are putting up $20,000.00 for both the cross-country and cyclocross series overall winners. Both the cross-country and cyclocross series consist of four rounds to determine the overall champion, in a “winner take all format”.
In addition, we are proud to partner with Kenda Tires, to produce the Kenda Cup West and East amateur series, both of which bring mountain biking to local and regional areas across the country. These races are great for first timers or aspiring pros to get their taste of racing.

The US Cup is proud to announce that it will be hosting two HC events for 2017.
