MN LEAGUE – RECAP AND NEWS FOR 2014
The MN League, which began in 2012, nearly doubled in size for 2013 and organizers expect growth to continue for season 3 in 2014. “We had 26 teams racing in 2013,” said MN League Director Josh Kleve. “We expect another 8 to 10 teams will join the league for 2014. We think we’ll be right around 350 student athletes racing.”
The MN League is one of 10 statewide mountain bike racing leagues operating under the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). Based in Berkeley, CA, NICA provides resources and guidance to guide the development of high school mountain bike racing across the U.S.
For the 2014 Fall racing season, MN League will be adding two new race venues to their schedule. Race 3 on Oct. 5th will take place at the Gamehaven Scout Reservation just south of Rochester. Race 4 will take place in Duluth, with the location yet to be decided. Just as in 2013, new venues are added to the MN League schedule to help drive team development and bring statewide awareness of the high school mountain bike racing program.
New for the 2014 season will be the integration of middle school students. Previously, only high school aged students could participate in NICA mountain bike racing programs. Thanks to a successful Pilot Program hosted by the MN League in 2013, 7th and 8th graders can either join existing teams or launch separate middle school teams for 2014.
Racing will take place in September and October 2014.
