FLASHBACK

The first photo from the 2014 season at Minooka Park. This was our first race and we celebrated the simple fact - that we had done it! We had a new sport for Wisconsin youth. And, over the winter months...we have added quite a few teams!

In the 2014 season, we started with 16 teams and now, we are almost to 26!

SEE CURRENT & PROSPECTIVE TEAMS

Congratulations to all and get ready - the 2015 season is here! So, who is ready to start mountain bike racing!

NEW! TRY-IT-OUT SESSIONS

June/July/August

Just what it says, these are primarily for student athletes that would like to give mountain biking a try and meet members and coaches of your local team. These sessions generally run on a weekday evening from 6:00pm-7:30pm.

We are working with existing coaches and team directors to plan a Try-it-Out-Session in their region. These sessions would also be an ideal event for communities/schools looking to start a team as well.

We also have a fleet of a dozen bikes donated from The Trek Stores, Erik's, and Wheel and Sprocket that are available for riders who do not own a bike. This is a huge tool in growing or forming your team!

Please let Kathy Mock know ASAP when you would like to have your region's Try-It-Out Session. Please send Kathy Mock an email at kathy@wisconsinmtb.org. Send Email
