Fox was excited to support the return of this great event in 2017 and we are proud to increase our involvement to title sponsor this year. Our goal is to help position the Fox US Open of Mountain Biking as the leading gravity event in the U.S. in 2018 and beyond.Dave Ahumada, Global Marketing Manager, Fox MTB

The Fox US Open of Mountain biking will feature a wide range of events including the legendary Open Class Downhill, the inaugural USO Enduro, best whip comp and the Grom Bomb and Super Grom Downhill events, giving the future of the sport a chance to show what they’ve got.

bigquotesJust like us, Fox believes in the heritage of US gravity racing and we’re thrilled to sign this multi-year partnership with them. Their unwavering commitment to the sport and reputation in the industry is second to none. We’re looking forward to developing the next chapter of the US Open with Fox. Racers and fans can expect great things!Clay Harper, US Open Event Director

In addition to the title partnership with Fox, the 2018 USO will see the return of GT Bicycles as presenting partner of both the downhill and enduro events. CLIF Bar and Fox Factory also continue their support of the US Open with plans for unique onsite activations and high-end prizing. Red Bull has supported the US Open since the early days and will be onboard again, this year focusing on a crowd favorite, the USO Best Whip Comp.

The Fox US Open will also introduce some new partners this year including Flat Tire Defender who saw their riders finish 1st and 2nd at last year’s Open. Racers will get a taste of the east coast in the Flat Tire Defender Rock Garden and the U.S. based foam insert maker will be on-hand with product and tech support. Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports will be the presenting partner for the adaptive downhill. This non-profit organization is based out of Killington and will offer demos and adaptive riding opportunities during the US Open. Another Vermont favorite and new partner to the Fox US Open is Long Trail Brewing Company. The craft brewer makes their legendary beers, including the Trail Hopper IPA and Over the Handlebars double IPA, minutes from Killington and holds a reputation for MTB community involvement.

More event information and registration details coming soon.
