April 2013 Racing

The 2013 American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Mid-America Cross-Country (MAXC) racing season is set to kick off April 13 at Monster Mountain in Canaan, IN, just over an hour from Louisville, KY. MAXC has co-sanctioned with Kentucky Cross Country Racing (KCCR) to present a new venue to the ever-growing KCCR series.

"We are looking forward to KCCR racers joining us this round and we are sure they will like what Monster Mountain has to offer," said MAXC Race Series owner Mike Gibbs.

MAXC debuted Monster Mountain XC as a new venue in 2012 and had great feedback on the facility, track layout and racing from both dirtbike and ATV racers.

This year, Monster Mountain XC will feature an 8-mile course very similar to last year's. The track will consist of many elevation and terrain changes in an attempt to make the track fun and challenging. There are several new hillclimbs and pro line sections that are sure to be exciting for both racers and spectators. In addition, racers will be navigating down the rocky creek section in the opposite direction of last year's course. Bike racers last year stated that Monster Mountain MAXC reminded them of an Endurocross style race.

Monster Mountain is a fan favorite because of its great racing, beautiful landscape and easy to access parking. A paved driveway leads up to a mountaintop clearing that offers plenty of mowed grass parking overlooking the treetops of Canaan.

2012 AMA MAXC Monster Mountain XC winners were Chris Bach in the AA Bike Class and Ryan Lane in the AA ATV Class.
