Full Speed Ahead

The fall season of NICA is rapidly approaching; moving at the speed of a bullet train.

Below are IMPORTANT bullet points from Coach Mike:

  • Registration for our Fall NICA season is open!
  • Returning families should already have a dashboard set up in the NICA Pit Zone.
  • New families will need a NICA invite from the coach.
  • This year you must be registered and have your national/state fees paid before you can practice with us.  This is a change from the past.
  • Racing, as always, is optional, and is a choice that can be made at a later date.
  • Practices will begin around July 1.
  • Adults/parents that want to ride along with the team must be registered as volunteers, including a background check, CDC concussion training and the NICA training video.

  • Meet and Greet on Sunday, June 3 after WOYW banquet (Shelter 1, New Quarter Park)

Wouldn’t this look pretty amazing on a pit zone canopy?!

A shout out to Robert at Red Barn Bikes for the generous donation to the team from his March Tune-Up Fundraiser.  And to all of his customers who made the extra effort to get their machines into his shop during March, we thank you and appreciate your support of our team.  Merci! Gracias! Danke! See you on the trails.

Race 5- Hot, Hot Day

Blue Ridge School in St. George hosted race 5 of the 2018 Spring VAHS Series. (See results by race here.) It was a beautiful day for racing but plenty hot. And to think, the first race of this series was rescheduled because of snow!  No complaining about the stream crossing today.

As this wraps up the spring series, a note from Coach Mike:

Teammates, Coaches & Parents:

Kudos to those who competed in the spring VAHS series!  Everyone did an outstanding job on  the toughest courses we will see in high school racing!  We had some outstanding results as well, but more importantly, just this past Saturday a coach from another team commented on what polite young people and nice families our team attracts.  That is a huge WIN!
