us openWith over $50,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs, the U.S. Open of Mountain Biking is hard evidence that America’s mountain bike gravity racing scene is alive and well. The event, which takes place at Diablo Freeride Park/Mountain Creek Resort in Vernon, NJ on May 22nd-24th, 2009, offers up-and-coming athletes a unique opportunity to compete against the world’s elite gravity pros.

With improvements including an updated Downhill course, a new Giant Slalom/IndyCross discipline, and a new Junior class racing category, the 2009 edition of the U.S. Open should prove to be the largest to date. The total pro purse is $25,000 in cash, with the pay-out scale being equal for both the men’s and women’s categories.

There will be demo opportunities and an exhibitor expo for those interested in checking out the latest gear. For more information and/or registration visit this link.
