Teen Mountain Bikers Take On Folsom Lake Trails
ROCKLIN, CA - March 20, 2013 - Folsom Lake will be abuzz with the whir of wheels and the cheering of fans on the weekend of March 23rd and 24th as over 50 cycling teams from Northern California race through eleven different categories of high school mountain biking.
Placer Valley Tourism is teaming up with the NorCal High Cycling League to host this event in Placer Valley for the third year in a row! Most every high school in California north of San Luis Obispo will be competing in this race, and around 650 competitors are expected to participate. Admission is free for spectators and refreshments are available on-site at the race.
This weekend's race is the third out of six races; the second to last competition before league and state championships in April and May. The competitors will be racing-rain or shine-on a mixture of trails and off-road cycling paths at the lake; the twisting single-track, wide double track and rolling crosscountry track will put each racer's individual skill level, agility and endurance to the test. Competitors will arrive at 8am for set up and warm up and races begin at 10am, typically running to about 3pm. Award ceremonies are conducted after all of the races have ended.
