The Long Track AmCup Final + Champions Challenge is the final US competition of the year where skaters can earn points towards their ranking from the AmCup series. At the final they receive 1.5 times the points so it is the most important competition in the series. US Speedskating uses the AmCup ranking as the skaters’ US ranking from which they can be invited to train with the National Team, receive services, invites to training camps, etc.
All AmCup races have time standards in order to compete. The Champions Challenge is an opportunity for those skaters who do not have the qualifying times to put everything they have worked on for the season to the test. At this competition they strive to achieve personal best times that can qualify them for the AmCup series in the next season.
Admission for spectators is FREE.
Registrations can be done via the USS website.
