The Salt Lake City MTB Bike Teams had their first two "practices" of the 2014 season this week.
Tuesday we got some new riders fitted on loaner bikes and made sure everyone was registered.
Thursday we had a full practice for 13 student-athletes. 8 adult coaches and parents helped out. Many of our returning riders were unable to attend because they are practicing with Summit Bike Club for the summer, but this only gave us a better opportunity to get to know our new athletes. We focused on teaching the attack position and braking in the parking lot at Jeremy Ranch elementary school before testing our tires on the single track in Bob's Basin.
The last exercise of the day was a team favorite round of Last Foot Down.
We are underway in 2014!!
