USA Cycling is looking for a new venue for its 2011 Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championships, which are slated for Oct. 28-30.

The original host for the event, the Timberline Resort in Davis, West Virginia., was forced to step down due to unanticipated, off-season changes to the would-be venue. For the last two years collegiate nationals were held at Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort in Truckee, California.

USA Cycling representatives said they are confident they will soon secure a new venue capable of hosting cross-country, short-track cross-country, downhill, and either four-cross or dual-slalom events.

Race organizers interested in promoting the event over the weekend of Oct. 28-30 can click here to see the Request for Proposal or contact USA Cycling National Events Director, Kelli Lusk, at klusk@usacycling.org or (719) 434-4285.
