2009 AMBC Schedule Announced

USA Cycling has announced the 2009 American Mountain Bike Challenge (AMBC) calendar:
"The series kicks off March 8 in Gainesville, Fla. with the South Eastern Regional Championship Series (SERC) and concludes with the Piney Hills Classic in Ruston, La., Oct. 24-25. With 22 races across 16 states, the seven-month long AMBC calendar provides racers of all ability levels the opportunity to contest top-level competition right in their own backyard.

Created in 1996, the AMBC series offers cross-country racing, with some events also including time trial, short-track cross-country, super D and/or stage racing competitions. In addition to the senior, master, and professional races, some AMBC events also host the Alison Dunlap Junior Olympic Mountain Bike Series (ADJOMTB). The ADJOMTB offers riders age 10-18, the chance to test their skills against competitors of the same age."
