COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Cycling announced earlier this month the 2019 and 2020 USA Cycling Marathon Mountain Bike National Championships location. The race will be held in the same location for both years in Palo Duro Canyon outside of Amarillo TX.

“USA Cycling is excited to head to Palo Duro Canyon for the 2019 and 2020 USA Cycling Marathon Mountain Bike Nationals,” said Tara McCarthy, Senior National Events Manager for USA Cycling, “The course will be fun, non-stop action in a beautiful setting. We’re excited to work with Karie and Keevin with Team ANB who have a wealth of experience running mountain bike races in the Canyon and we are looking forward to an amazing two years.”

The course will take you on Palo Duro’s Comanche Trail which boasts technical climbs and descents, as well as sections of smooth, fast trails of the floor of the canyon.

“We are extremely excited to be hosting the 2019 and 2020 USA Cycling National Marathon Championship in Palo Duro Canyon, Texas.
