Petersen says, “We’re really grateful to be able to run our mountain bike program through the National Interscholastic Cycling Association this season, as we know the kids are super excited to be able to go out riding as a team.

“Practices will be similar to last year, with emphasis on keeping the groups small and consistent. We’re unsure about racing this season but the SoCal League has designed an achievement-based program that provides challenges to all levels.”
