The Woodcreek High School Mountain Bike Club will officially begin preparation for the 2009 high school mountain bike racing season on December 27th with a four day training camp in Granite Bay, California. The camp will consist of four days of training rides, skills clinics, team meeting and evening social get-togethers. This is the second year that the team will hold a pre-season training camp over the Christmas holiday. Last year’s event was very successful in spite of record cold temperatures in the area.You can check out their website at http://www.weracemountainbikes.com/.
This year the team camp will feature a visit from guest pro bike racer Mike Sayers, from BMC Cycling. Sayers, a recently retired pro, will be sharing his expertise and passion for cycling with the team. “I asked Mike if he would be willing to ride with us, and I was thrilled that he had space in his schedule and he accepted our invitation”, said Jim Winne, the Director of the Woodcreek team. “I have always admired Mikes approach to the sport, and to life, and I’m glad that the kids will get a chance to rub elbows with him.
This four-day camp based at various sites around Folsom Lake, will be the first step in preparing the team for the 2009 racing season with the NorCal High School Mountain Bike Racing League. This popular and highly competitive cross-country racing series is comprised of over 30 high school teams from Northern and Central California. Woodcreek High School will be starting their third season in the league. Last year Woodcreek finished the season ranked in the top five in Division 1 competition.
