NORTE! Youth Cycling is stoked to bring a fit, fast squad to the Iceman Cometh race this weekend. We are beyond proud of these kids. Some were complete beginners when we began our weekly dirt shred, VASA Domingos, in May but they are now all legit mountain bikers. Strong on the climbs. Smooth out of the corners. Confident through the sand.

They are the next generation of racers in TC.

Come out to Timber Ridge Saturday and cheer on these Champions In Orange!

A special thank you to Mr. John Robert Williams whose several awesome photos we used in this post. Gracias.
