Spring 2019 Coach Message

All students interested in learning to mountain bike, or experienced riders that want to ride/race with friends, should join the Stargate HS Mountain Bike Team.  We are a Co-Ed, all-inclusive team helping all level of riders, from new to the sport to advanced, meet their individual mountain biking goals.  Our regular season runs from early August through the end of October.  However, in the spring/summer we run optional pre-season clinics, fun rides and other get-togethers, as well as order team jerseys. During the season we practice 2-4 days a week and race every other weekend. Races are optional, but a ton of fun!  Stargate MTB has had riders qualify for the State Championship for the past 2 seasons!!

If you are interested in joining the mountain bike team for fall of 2019 do not delay!  We will take on new riders up to September 1st, as long as we have enough coaches.  So, join now to avoid being left out of an awesome experience. 

We will be having our spring launch party soon, which is your opportunity to come out and meet the riders and coaches.  Check back here and in the Cable Connection for the date and time. 

If you have any questions or would like to join our team please contact me via email or phone and check out the league website at: http://coloradomtb.org/

I look forward to riding with you!

Thank you,
