Mountain bikers prepare for season

The Nevada Union Independent Mountain Bike Team will kick off its 2005 Season this Sunday at Folsom Lake in the Mountain Bike Challenge #2.

“We are feeling confident coming into this season that we will take first place in the NorCal High School League this year, which is something the team has done three of the four years it has been in existence,” said coach Debra Little.

This weekend’s race is the closest event to western Nevada County on the season schedule, and expects to be a wild ride with mud and sand after this week’s worth of rainfall.

The NorCal High School Mountain Bike League 2005 race schedule includes the following stops: Folsom Lake, MTB Challenge #2 (Feb. 20); Iron Angels, Angels Camp (March 6); Central Coast Invitational, Monterey (March 20); Billy Cross High School Race, Lake Sonoma (April 3); and the NorCal High State Championship at Walker Creek Ranch, West Marin (May 1).
