2019 FOX US OPEN OF MTB

2019 FOX US OPEN OF MTB

The Fox US Open of Mountain Bike is coming to the West Coast on September 12-15th. A fact which may seem trivial, except when you consider it's the first time in the event's history.  We are proud to be the title sponsor and thrilled to have the event in our own backyard - Snow Summit Bike Park in Big Bear Lake, CA.

 

EVENT SCHEDULE

 

We're really looking forward to hosting the Fox US Open on the west coast for the first time in our 16 year history! Not only is Big Bear Lake a beautiful location, the town has deep roots in MTB racing. Snow Summit is investing in their bike park and we like their long-term vision. And they know how to throw a good party, so we're feeling right at home!

— Clay Harper, Event Director, Fox US Open

The Fox US Open of Mountain biking will feature a wide range of events including Downhill, Enduro, best whip competition and USO Next Gen Youth Downhill events - giving the future of the sport a chance to show what they got.

This may be the first west-coast-hosted Fox US Open of Mountain Biking. But, Snow Summit Bike Park is no novice when it comes to putting on world-class events. They hosted the NORBA Nationals back in the '90s and have made a name for themselves with their annual -  and wildly popular -  Crafts & Cranks event. And with an event in southern California, spectators and athletes can expect beautiful riding conditions with blue skies and plenty of sunshine.

 

“Snow Summit Bike Park and the entire community of Big Bear Lake are excited to welcome the Fox US Open of Mountain Biking. Summit, similar to the Open, is built around fun on bikes along with sharing similar values to our everyday operations here in the bike park. Both Summit and the Open have a long history with mountain biking, and we are looking forward to the partnership and its future.”

—Clayton Shoemaker, Marketing Director, Big Bear Mountain Resort

Spectating is free, and the bike park will be open to the public all weekend. Come join us for an awesome weekend spent riding and watching world-class racing.
