Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie, Pennsylvania, will host the event on July 17-21, 2024

America’s XC National Championships are scheduled to take place just over a week before the Olympic mountain bike events take place in Paris, where the women’s Olympic mountain bike race is scheduled for Sunday, July 28th, and the men are scheduled to race on Monday, July 29th. We’ll be curious to see if any of the U.S. Olympic Mountain Bike Team members will skip the U.S. race in Pennsylvania in order to better prepare for the Olympic race.
