USA Cycling announced the rankings in its National Mountain Bike Calendars after several early-season events.
Going into this weekend's Dirt Sweat & Gears in Fayetteville, Tennessee, the ultra-endurance standings reflected races up through and including the 12 hours of Santos. Jason Sager and Harvey Minton were tied for the men's lead while Christina Smith and Carol Clemens were tied for the women's lead.
On the gravity calendar, only one men's event has been contested so far, the Keyesville Classic. After the one event, Curtis Beavers stands atop the men's standings. This weekend's 4X and dual slalom at the Chalk Creek Stampede in Nathrop, Colorado, are the next events on the calendar.
