It’s a little chilly this morning, but BR Mountain Biking is ready to go! And thanks to our sponsors, our new wind jackets are perfect for windy days like today.
On the eve of our second mountain bike race of the season, I'd like to celebrate a non-cycling success. One of our own BR mountain bike team graduates, Jake Fields, is now on staff with the Alabama NICA League. While there may be the rare olympian or world champion come through NICA, NICA exists for the other 99% to get more kids on bikes. As a student rider, Jake volunteered at each of of his races (before and after). Jake exemplifies what NICA is all about by falling in love with the lifetime sport of mountain biking, giving back in college by helping coach local NICA teams, and now working hard as a staff member for the AL league. Thank you NICA for your program, AL League for recognizing hard work, and Jake for being a successful graduate of BR mountain biking!
