The American Mountain Classic will bring the popular international tradition of cross country stage racing to the US. The inaugural event will come to Brian Head, Utah on August 21-24 and will feature 170 miles over four days and 14,000 feet of climbing. Organizers adopted a four day format with moderate distances in order to appeal to elite racers as well as serious racers who may not have the vacation time travel for a longer event or one in a more exotic location.
