High School Mountain Bike Club

Sponsor - Patrick Bacalis

Our team is Co-ed and working toward full inclusion as an official school sport.  In the absence of waiting for the SVVSD to come around we are working to establish team letters and apparel not only to demonstrate to future employers or colleges of this achievement but for the students accomplishment as well. We have riders and custom jerseys for these schools (Silver Creek, Lyons, Longmont, Niwot) We are growing and our current interested team roster is ~30 riders from 5 schools. The MTB team is officially organized within the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) and we operate directly with the Colorado division of NICA (coloradomtg.org).  It is a full functioning and nationally recognized association with high standards for all coaches, directors, ride leaders and parents who wish to assist students during any event.  For example, as a team director we are required to have certifications in wilderness first aid, CPR, concussion training and background checks.  All ride leaders or parents who wish to volunteer to assist with students will also have background checks. This is all done to ensure that we offer a safe and secure as well as fun environment for the student athletes. Coaches for 2016Team Director; Eric Jepsen (eric@ephub.com)Assistant Coach: Dawn Lundell (lundell_dawn@svvsd.org)Assistant Coach: Aleta Wilson (willson_aleta@svvsd.org)Rider Leaders: Olan, Doris, Steve, Piet Costs for 2016Team fees are $40 (down from $100 due to sponsors): Please make payment to "Lyons Mountain Bike Racing Club" at 9519 N 89th, Longmont CO 80503Fees: NICA League $65 and $60 per race (which are due 1 week before each race)Example Fees: NICA + 4 races: $405Once we receive the team payment the student will be registered with the team and will then receive an email from NICA "pitzone" to register with the league.  This is required to ride any of the official team rides since insurance is involved. Sponsors / Discounts / BenefitsBoulder Sports Garage: will conduct ride clinics and discount parts and maintenance (events TBD)Breakaway Cycle and Fitness: will conduct indoor training sessions Red Stone Cyclery and Bike-N-Hike has offered discounts on bike maintenance and partsNew Bikes / Racks / other gear - please contact me for significant discount options for Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, RockyMounts and others.
