Arizona High School Mountain Bike Season will Name State Champions this weekend
For the second year, The White Tanks Mountain Regional Park will host the finals of the Arizona State High School MTB league.
With so many close points races for individuals, this race is key as athletes who have raced in all 5 races in the series will be awared an additional 25 points. This would easily tilt the scales in favor of the most consistent racer.
This season also marks the second full season of Arizona High School MTB league. Arizona high school athletes have really taken to the MTB league with almost 300 riders joining in its first year.
Tucson High School is currently leading the team standings over its northern rival Oro Valley Composite with Cactus Shadows High School in third.
Individual leaders in each class are listed below
Registration is open for any students who still want to sign up and race. You can do it on-line or on-site. You must register one hour before your race. Got Questions? Email Registration Manager Javier Ochoa

Getting to the RACE - Road Construction and Traffic
Please be aware of road construction and road closures that may cause visitors to the park to take detours. The Arizona Department of Transportation is improving the Loop 303 corridor between Interstate 17 in Phoenix and I-10 in Goodyear. You can find more information on ADOT’s Area Projects webpage. In addition, Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale will be hosting a full slate of NASCAR racing this weekend. Sounds like another good reason to pre-register online so you have one less distraction and can focus on riding your bike.
