In a letter from Jeremiah Dylan Dean (reprinted below), we just learned that the best thing going for USA-based downhill racers is sadly coming to an end, at least for now. While individual races may still exist as they did in years past, they won't be part of the now former USGP national series.

JDD, thanks for busting your butt for so many years! We're definitely going to miss the series.


Dear Mountain Bike Friends,

After much reflection, I have decided to postpone the US Grand Prix of Mountain Biking until further notice. I wanted to thank everyone for their continued support through my time with the Pro GRT and into the USGP of Mountain Biking. Unfortunately my plans to help rebuild the US race scene by combining downhill, enduro and other disciplines have yet to bear fruit. Although I do believe that program I developed can be and will be successful, it will have to wait until a further time.

I urge you to continue to support U.S. racing, as we will be. Until a true national caliber series can be developed and be sustainable, there are plenty of regional and local events to support.

Thank you all once again for your support. I will see you at the races!

Best regards,
