This Saturday there is a MBAA mountain bike race in Phoenix. Thank you to all of you who communicated as I hoped.
Here is who I have: Caden, Elliot, Leo, Damiano, Reece, Susie, Thomas, Thorstan and Luca.
Logistics: Bring a snack and a change of clothes. Please pack a team t shirt for after the race.
Leave at 8:45am. Early because we need to get Susie there on time, so that she can warm up.
Should be home no later than 6:30pm.
Grupo will provide lunch.
Sunday– Mt Lemmon ride. 8:30 depart the clubhouse.
State Championship Mountain bike race Next weekend. This will be another one off race. Drive to Phoenix and back. However will be leaving much earlier for the race, because that is what start times dictate. Information can be found here: https://swsportsreg.com/viewevent.php?EC=556
The race is on Saturday March 30th
We have groups moving in all directions this week. Please be patient with us as we try to ensure that all your kids get what they need.
Group 1– Temecula Riders and San Dimas Riders
If you are road bike only, then you have been given your instructions for this week. Please ask me if you need any more clarification. Madison and Ana you have not been given direction, my apologies lets ensure you know your plan moving forward.
Temecula Riders– If you raced at Bonelli then I would recommend you take today off. Get your school work done and recover a bit more.
If you are racing Temecula but were here this weekend, then there is a MTB ride for you today.
All others there is a mountain bike ride for you today.
Temecula riders– MTB afternoon ride. Pre race prep. Strong endurance ride.

Saturday— MBAA White Tanks MTB race. This is a Phoenix race, and we can do it as a one day adventure. There is no extra cost.
However next weekend is the MTB State Championship race. If you can only make it to one of the races then, please prioritize next weekends. Only come this weekend if you can make both.
I need to know by Wednesday what you can do, so that we do not pay late fees. You must post here, so that we can get you properly signed up.
Many teammates leave today to head to California. Wish us all luck and speed.
Keenan is going to be in charge at the clubhouse and for practice the next few days.
Thursday– Most of you will be heading down to the crit course to practice for the race this weekend.
Saturday— Tolero Crit. This will be the most chill race of the season. There is not going to be any other junior in the race. We are only going to be racing ourselves. So Keenan is going to have fun breaking you guys up into teams and racing that way. So this is going to be just like practice, just with a number on. Its good for us to support the local race. The race starts at 7:30 am. We need to be on site by 6:30 am. So we need to leave the clubhouse by 6am. Parents is someone available to drive behind the group as they ride down? Its at Park and 36th St. Directly after the crit the kids will ride back to the clubhouse, so they should be ready to pick up and leave by 9 am ish.
Racers– Please remember to fill out your waiver form at the clubhouse before leaving.
Registered junior riders are: Axel, Estevan, Thomas, Reece, Thorstan, Zeke Maddy Morgan.
Registered cat 3 racers– Rogan, Quinn and Ethan Sotelo
If you are not racing the crit then the Shoot Out is back.
