National Calendars


The American Mountain Bike Calendar (AMBC) was created in 1996 to recognize, support, and provide top-level regional racing opportunities for racers of all abilities.


AMBC competitions are excellent places for riders to try the racing scene for the first time or seasoned athletes to test their skills against their fellow racers. All AMBC events offer cross-country racing, with some events also including downhill, dual slalom, four cross, short-track cross-country, and/or observed trials competitions. AMBC cross country races provide racers an opportunity to qualify for Mountain Bike Nationals. The top 15 per age group in Cat 1 and 2 races automatically qualify for nationals as long as licensing requirements are met.

If you are interested in hosting a AMBC race in 2021 please complete and return the application below.
