The Fox US Open of Mountain Biking was canceled today after the Forest Service ordered the closure of California's National Forests until at least September 17. The closure is a response to an ongoing wildfire crisis in the state.
The event was scheduled for September 23-26 at Big Bear Mountain Resort's Summit Bike Park. Although the forests could reopen before the event's scheduled dates, there wouldn't be enough time for the event organizers to prepare after finding out definitively whether it would happen. All the athletes currently registered will have their entry fees refunded.
The event's 2022 dates will be announced in the coming months at usopen.bike
