McCall Winter Sports Club and Tamarack Resort are teaming up to promote the sport of cycling and to inspire a new generation of mountain bikers.
Last winter season MWSC and Tamarack entered into a new partnership to produce youth ski development programs and competitions. This summer season we’ll keep the wheels turning for youth athletes – this time on dirt; once the snow melts of course. Tamarack anticipates its trails will be dry mid-June.
We’re calling this new opportunity for local youth the “Jr. Mountain Bike League.” Programming is geared towards beginner to intermediate riders 9-12 years of age who are interested in learning riding techniques with an introduction to the sport of racing. Besides the fundamentals, Head Coach Kerry Lofy and others will teach map reading, nutrition, trail etiquette and trail maintenance.
Cost to join is $350 for 2-days per week or $260 for Fridays only. The league will kick off June 13th and run Tuesdays and Fridays, 5:00-7:00pm through August 11th.
Registration is open HERE and includes a team jersey and entry in to each of the Soda Pop XC Races. Participation in the Jr. Mountain Bike League is not a requirement for participating in the Soda Pop XC Race Series. We want to see all MTB riders, even if you aren’t able to commit to the league!! The only minimum requirement to participate in the series is that the bike has 24” wheels or bigger.
The Soda Pop XC Race Series is for mountain bike riders of ALL ages. Races are scheduled for Thursday evenings on 6/29, 7/6, and 8/3. It is our hope that our biking community will participate in this town bike league. In addition to the junior divisions, there will be young adult, not-so-young, and older-adult divisions.
After sending it on Tamarack’s fun cross-country trails, racers and fans will celebrate with awards and beverages – the bubbly and the frothy kind. Registration for races will open mid-June at mwsc.club/mtb.
MWSC is seeking sponsors for team jerseys and prizes. See options and needs HERE. If interested, email email@example.com.
