We have a team! 2012 is the inaugural year of official high-school-only mountain bike racing in Utah. Sure, high school kids have been able to race in lots of Utah's mountain-bike races if they wanted, but this fall, high schools all around Utah are starting teams and racing against each other as a high school club sport in the Utah High School Cycling League and under the direction of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). NICA is huge and professional and they are going to get us off to a super stellar start.
But this blog isn't about the Utah League or NICA, this is about our East High Mountain Bike Club based out of East High School in Salt Lake City. It is about a group of motivated young adults and some dedicated coaches that are going to work together to race hard, have fun, and learn about biking, life, and each other. It'll be grand!
Here is a link to our Facebook page if you want to see what we are up to on a daily basis.
But check this blog for pictures of practices, race reports, athlete profiles, sponsor profiles, and coach profiles.
Feel free to comment and share. Let's get the word out.
We have changed our name to SLC Composite Mountain Bike Team to reflect our expansion to targeted riders from outside East High. Now, any high school student attending a high school in Salt Lake City that does not have its own school team may join our team. Riders will be primarily from East, West, and Highland High Schools, but we welcome students throughout Salt Lake City.
