If you're a mountain biker, chances are you've heard of Bentonville by now. The once-quiet city in northwest Arkansas exploded into a world-class mountain biking destination in the last decade and shows no signs of slowing down. Now USA Cycling has announced Bentonville will play home field to the U.S. National Mountain Bike Team. The move comes as USA Cycling sets its sights on a mountain biking gold medal in the 2028 Summer Olympics.
