Practice Info

Practices will begin in July 9th 

Practices are 1.5 hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays

Each practice will include technical skills work, maintenance, dryland, etc. along with plenty of time riding the trails.

Practice times will adjust as we lose daylight to start earlier

Riders will be divided into groups based on rider skills observed by coaching staff (during the first few practices) and in discussions with athletes on their goals/interests.  

Also, occasional weekend team-building trips, trail work and camping trips
