With two season races under their tires, the Mount Si Mountain Bike team is preparing for a third challenge.

Despite grueling weather conditions, the team had a strong start to the season in its first race at Fort Steilacoom, Wash., on Sunday, April 7. The team placed fourth of 13. Strong individual performances earning a place on the podium were Forrest Golic, who took second place for junior varsity, and Jake Cleven, who took third place for the beginner’s category.

The next race, held Sunday, April 28, at Joint Base Lewis McChord, gave the riders a chance to race with less technical terrain in variable conditions. Logan Roy earned a spot on the podium for his strong fifth-place finish for junior varsity boys.

Coach Luke Talbott and the team are now headed to Gig Harbor for their next invitational.
