The East Coast Junior MTB Championships is a place for the top young talent to come and test themselves amongst the nation's best! All junior racers are invited to compete in their prospective age categories, amongst their peers. There will also be an elite category where any junior who feels they can be the fastest in the nation can accept the challenge. Many College Coaches will be in attendance and are looking for prospective student/athletes.

COLLEGES ATTENDING - Many more to be added

Union College

CrossXC Practice in the morning and Enduro Practice in the afternoon. Clinics and a Meet and Greet with the College Coaches mid day.

CROSS COUNTRY: ( Saturday )

Cross Country is an endurance based event where racers compete on a 3-4 mile lap for a certain number of laps. Lap counts will be determined by category. Laps consist of uphills and downhills on varied terrain. Usual laps times will be 10-15 minutes per lap.

ENDURO: ( Sunday )

Enduro is a gravity based event with multiple timed stages. The Timed stages are the downhill portions. The uphill portions are not timed. The podium results will be based on an accumulation of time for all timed stages.

The Junior Mountain Bike Championships will crown champions in both cross-country and enduro disciplines. The races will be divided by gender and offer racing age classes in two year increments starting with a 10-and-under class. There will also be an elite category where any junior who feels they can be the fastest in the nation can step up to the plate. Registration is open to anyone from anywhere and we extend a special invitation to our friends from north of the border to come join the fun. No licenses of any kind are needed so there is no red tape for parents to worry about.

ESC Enduro at Glen Park

The venue for the U.S. Cup East Coast Junior Mountain Bike Championships will be Glen Park in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Glen Park has played host to an Eastern States Couple enduro race each of the past couple years and has been lauded by racers for the variety of terrain it packs into a modest 500' vertical. The Pocono Bike Club maintains more than ten miles of trails in Glen Park that run the gamut from cross country to freeride. The trails check all the boxes with flow, tech, steeps, rocky features and speed but are still approachable for any level of rider.

For racers interested in participating at the collegiate level, this event will offer a unique chance to meet coaches and recruiters from many of the top cycling schools in the country. Coaches will be offering training and race strategy clinics in both cross-country and enduro and will be looking for young talent to showcase their skills on race day. Visiting schools can be a daunting undertaking for a family but this event will offer ample opportunities for parents and racers to meet and interact with a wide range of coaches over the course of one weekend. College coaches will be on hand and available all weekend but Friday will feature several clinics with coaches that should prove invaluable to every racer, especially those considering collegiate competition in their future.
