Kessler Mountain Jam

A little summer swelter is no match for cross country bikers ready to take on some of the best riding in the Northwest Arkansas region at the Kessler Mountain Jam. Hosted by Fayetteville Parks & Recreation on Sunday, August 11 at Kessler Mountain Regional Park, this heart-pumping race is part of the Arkansas Mountain Bike Championship Series (AMBCS) and is sanctioned by USA Cycling (USAC.)

Kessler Mountain is home to beautiful bluffs and miles of trails that wind through old-growth forest, all in a setting remarkably near the action of the city. The views from the 387-acre protected woodland are top-notch, and provide a perfect hiking and biking getaway for active lifestyle enthusiasts—all just minutes from nightlife, shopping and Razorback sports.

A pre-ride and evening social will kick off the festivities on Saturday, August 10. The schedule for race day is as follows:

7 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. Registration and packet pick-up
8 a.m. Junior race start
9:05 a.m. Cat 3 race start
10:10 a.m. Cat 1 & 2 race start
11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Awards party with food, refreshments and music

Visit the City of Fayetteville website to register online for the race through August 9. Registration for the Kessler Mountain Jam does not include the mandatory USAC annual or daily permit, which may be purchased on site. Additionally, AMBCS hard plates are required for all cross country racers and are available for purchase if this will be the first AMBCS race for the participant.
