Salida High School Mountain Bike Team {Salida Racing} - We Need You!

The Salida High School Mountain Bike Team, "Salida Racing", is in its fifth season of cross country mountain bike racing in Colorado. This year there are 22 kids on the team (approx. 30% girls - some very fast and strong girls!). Eight volunteer coaches support the efforts of these great kids. The team is a club at the high school, not a CHSAA sport, so it receives no financial support from the school. All funding comes through donations and sponsorships.

The skill and experience level of kids on the team covers everything from newbie to uber-fast. The team travels together to four races and a state championship in two vans and camps at or near the race venues. The kids set up camp, prepare meals together, share the various camp tasks, and act as cheerleaders for each other during races. All costs associated with transportation, fuel, food, lodging, and race jerseys are paid for by the team. Riders pay only their league and race entry fees. The race schedule and CO MTB League info can be found at www.coloradomtb.org

If you would like to help support the team through either a tax deductible donation or a sponsorship, please contact James Haarmeyer, Team Director, at [email protected] or (719) 221-9394.

Thanks for your interest and support! Salida Racing
