XTERRA America Tour Overview

The race is on to find this year’s age group National Champions! An elite group of off-road warriors will earn the right to represent their region at the prestigious XTERRA USA Championship in Ogden, UT where they could be crowned national champions.

A nationwide network of races offers the chance to race your way to nationals. Ogden / Snowbasin will be the battleground for an exclusive field – the best age group athletes from each of XTERRA’s eight regions. At the end of the race, newly crowned national champions will take the podium, and you could be one of them.

There are four regional championships earning the top 15 in each division up to 100 points toward their season total.

April 25, 2015 – XTERRA West Championship – Lake Las Vegas, NV
May 16, 2015 – XTERRA Southeast Championship – USAT Offroad Nationals – Pelham, AL
June 14, 2015 – XTERRA East Championship – Richmond, VA
July 18, 2015 – XTERRA Mountain Championship – Beaver Creek, CO
September 19, 2015 – XTERRA Nationals – Ogden, UT
November 01, 2015 – XTERRA World Championship – Kapalua, Maui, HI

For Pros: The top 15 elites at each championship event are awarded points based on overall pro finish.  Pros count their best three-of-four scores plus the points they get (or don’t get) at the XTERRA USA Championship in Utah. Thus, the final point total combines the best three scores in the first four races, plus the USA Championship race points.  He/she with the most points in the end is declared the U.S. Pro Series Champ. The U.S. Series will dish out $140,000 in prize money: $15,000 at each regional championship race, $20,000 at the USA Championship, and $60,000 to the top overall points scorers in the Series. The XTERRA World Championship in Kapalua, Maui is a stand-alone event worth $100,000.

For Amateurs:  The XTERRA America Tour is designed to provide age group athletes (amateurs) with a bona-fide championship to compete for within their geographic region. At the end of the regular season the top performers in each of eight regions are honored as Regional Champions and invited to compete against other athletes their same age at the National Championship in Utah in September.
