The first Cross country race of the season in the US kicked off in the usual fashion in Arizona during the first round of the MBAA race schedule. Nearly 900 racers showed up to compete in the annual season kickoff that happens a the McDowell Mountain Park in Fountain Hills.

It doesnt hurt that fastest U21 rider in the country came out of this league or a handful of other fast riders.
