Mountain Biking

The conference hosts a 4-5 week mountain biking season during the early part of the fall semester, cumulating in USA Cycling's Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championships which tend to be held either the 2nd or 3rd weekend in October.  Each race weekend will host a combination of endurance events like Cross Country and Short Track Cross Country with gravity events like Dual Slalom, Downhill, and Enduro.  Typical races will host 4 of the 5 varieties of races on one whole weekend.  

Schools interested in hosting MTB races will work on planning during the spring months, with the schedule being set at the conference's road championships in late April.  By then interested schools will need to have a facility/grounds that have either been secured or been verbally agreed upon for it's use.
