2008 US National Mountain Bike Series Finals Relocate

Blue Wolf Events is pleased to announce Brian Head, Utah, as the replacement venue for the National Mountain Bike Series Finals Presented by Trek VW, on August 30 and September 1, after Tamarack Resort, Idaho, had to remove itself from the schedule.

"I am really delighted that we have been able to resolve this crisis so quickly and cleanly. We've only crossed one state line, and we don't even have to change our date," said series director Jeff Frost, of event management company Blue Wolf. "And it is great to be returning to Brian Head. We were very impressed with this venue when holding a series round there two years ago."

Traci Brown, director of the mountain bike park at Brian Head, said: "We are very excited to have the NMBS back, not only from the sporting side, but also it's so great to have America's top mountain bike pros come play in our back yard. What better opportunity to showcase the caliber of our venue?"

Events scheduled for the National Mountain Bike Series Finals Presented by Trek VW include: Cross Country, Short Track, Dual Slalom, Downhill, Super D, and Marathon. Online entries are through mtbnationals.com .

Started in 1991, Brian Head Mountain Bike Park rises from a base elevation of 9600 feet and rises to 11,000 feet. 40 miles of single-track trails are maintained within the park boundary, and there is easy access to Forest Service trails beyond. A chair lift serves the downhill trails, and the gravity riders will benefit from a second pro/expert level downhill course 'Lil' Gritty' that was tested in the 2007 Utah Series. In addition to the cross country and downhill trails, the park features terrain parks that include jumps, dips, ladders and wooden elements.
