The Alta Mountain Bike Club competed in their first race in Solider Hollow Resort last Saturday, August 29th. They competed on a strenuous course that woundthrough the surrounding hills on public mountain bike trails, ranging from 5-6 miles per lap. Over 40 schools from around the state attended, including rivals Park City High School and Corner Canyon High School.
After hours of racing, Alta came away with three victories including Bryn Bingham (Freshmen Boys), Morgan Hales (Freshmen Girls), and Heather Horton (JV Girls). Thesewere the most victories taken by a single team out of all attending schools.
Alta came away with fourth overall; just behind third place, Park City. The team hopes to redeem themselves in a few weeks in their next race in Draper, where they will be racing where they practice on the Corner Canyon Trail System, just above the Andy Ballard Equestrian Center.
