It’s hard to believe we have finished up the VAHS season already! What a month for the Colonial Revolution Youth Mountain Bike Team. Even with all of the rain, flat tires, and broken chains there was nothing but smiles on the faces of the entire team; riders, coaches and parents. What a testament to the many adults that dedicate their time and to the riders themselves that put their heart and soul (a little blood and tears too, but rarely) into each race! Some new friendships were made, some old friendships strengthened, and just a lot of biking, hanging out and camping in the mountains with some of the best folks around. What could be better, right Coach Mike?
Amongst all of this FUN, these kids have pushed their mental and physical capabilities to the limit by navigating some of the best (and toughest) mountain bike trails the Blue Ridge of Virginia has to offer. They have represented the Revolution quite well. Overall there were 26 podium finishes by the team with 5 Revolution girls making the final podiums for overall series standings including one State Champion in the middle school girls class. WAY TO GO!
After a short break we will return to the local parks for some summer fun. Come out and join the Revolution! -Coach Randy et al.
