The Arkansas Mountain Bike Championship Series (AMBCS) was formed in 1996 when several promoters decided to bring their individual events together and add continuity and professionalism to make a series. Today the AMBCS reaches riders from all over Arkansas and surrounding states and offers races for any age group from youth to masters, for any experience level from the first-time rookie to the experienced professional, and for anyone else with a desire. Each race in the series gives the riders a multitude of different terrain, from old-school single track to beautiful flow.
All AMBCS races use USA Cycling classes and categories, as well as an active Junior program. Cross Country (XC) racing is an endurance-oriented event with a mass-start competition, divided by category and ability groups. Racing is about meeting new friends reuniting with others and living a healthy lifestyle.
Regardless if you are a seasoned veteran in racing or if you are looking for your first race opportunity, there is a race for you.
