HS MTB Practice 18-24 August and info on the 6 Hour Wasatch 360 MTB race hosted by the Summit Bike Club

Student athletes and adult volunteers,
  One more week of mountain bike riding and enjoying some free time before school starts.  This week we will be focusing on your cardiovascular training.  Less than 3 weeks before our first race and your skills continue to improve.  In fact the skills many of you possess will now let you increase your speed and efficiency.  This will be a very valuable asset for you as you break away from the start line on september 6th.

  This week I will ask adult volunteers to sign up as carpool assets as soon as possible.  Student athletes when you see an open slot please sign up.

On August 23rd the Summit Bike Club is hosting their annual 6 hour race.  Coach Lucy and Coach Ally will be racing the 6 Hour event as a duo team.  Coach Glen and Coach Natalie Perry will be racing, and several of our students who train with the Summit Bike Club will be racing  Are you interested in putting together a 3 person team and racing for 6 hours in Heber UT (as a relay team)?  Total cost for a 3 person student team $110.  Heck maybe you want to put together a parent / student duo team. This race is well supported, great course layout and many other HS student athletes will be participating.  Get some of your friends together and get out and race.  If you have any questions about the event or if I can be of any assistance helping you register please do not hesitate to contact me.  Check out the link below for more details!!
