The Wildcats hosted a successful mountain bike race weekend in Oracle State Park on Sept 20 and 21. Riders took home victories in the Men’s A, Men’s B, and Women’s B cross country events. On Sunday, the team went 1,2,3 in the Women’s B, 1st in the Men’s B, and 1st and 2nd in the Men’s A short track races. After a quick break the racing resumed and the team won the team relay by nearly a minute over NAU.
This week the team is off the Gallup, NM in hopes of closing the gap to NAU in the conference omnium!
Get pumped! Our home race on 9/20-21 is coming up soon! More info here:
We’re excited to bring another event to the town of Oracle and to work with the state park system! Hopefully this is the start of a strong relationship between state parks and mountain bike events.
Last weekend, riders competed in Angel Fire, NM at the Back 2 School Special. Kyle Trudeau took home the win in the Men’s A XC event and Alex Alvarez won the Men’s C. David Carlson, last years omnium winner, raced did his first down hill race and finished third, a handful of seconds behind teammate and winner Andrew Keller.
