The mission of the Placer Foothills HS Community is to provide a fun, safe, and friendly team environment to help student athletes achieve both competitive and non-competitive goals by riding and racing mountain bikes. Through hanging out, trail rides, training and competition, we aim to promote individual growth, fellowship within the team, and rapport within the biking community. We aspire to create a lifelong love of mountain biking and a healthy, active lifestyle.
Five High School Teams - One Community
WHO CAN RIDE?
Anybody with a strong desire and commitment to ride mountain bikes can join the Placer Foothills mountain bike development program. Whether you are new to biking or have prior experience, there is room on the team for you! Our Coaches will teach you everything you need to know. As members of the team, we love spending 5 to 10 hours a week riding our bikes all over the Placer Foothills area and exploring some of the best MTB trails in the state. We enjoy sharing this experience and developing lasting friendships with other riders on the team. We like to push the boundaries of our physical and mental endurance and skill set. We set training objectives and work hard over the season to achieve these goals.
