Give racing a try. This is a high school/middle school venue. It's meant to be a growing experience, not a professional competition. Races are like life, you get out what you put into them. No need to feel disappointed if you're not on the podium, just finishing some of these races is an accomplishment, ask any one of our coaches or participants! You'll be tired after a race for sure but there's nothing like saying "I did it!" after a tough race. If you really are intimidated by the thought of racing a bike, let's talk as there are ample opportunities to try a race out before committing to the team. There are local mountain bike enthusiast in the Hutchinson area that we can put you in touch with them if you really only want to ride your bike when you want to, and don't want to commit to regularly attending a structured team training/racing schedule.
