After a record 664 inches of snow fell on Mammoth Mountain this winter, USA Cycling will be relocating its 2006 mountain bike national championships scheduled for July 20-23.

“Looking at our snowpack today, I can confidently say we are unable to host a mountain bike event to the quality we are all accustomed to,” said Bill Cockroft, senior vice president of operations at Mammoth Mountain. “It was a difficult decision, but ultimately we believe we owe it to the mountain bike community to make sure the event continues at the level and standards expected by USA Cycling,” he added.

The original event dates remain unchanged, and USA Cycling is currently negotiating with several venues to replace Mammoth Mountain; a decision will be made in the coming weeks.
