We will concentrate on having fun this week prior to our final Southern Ca. League race. I will be going to Vail Lake on Saturday mid-day if anyone needs a ride or if anyone’s bike needs a ride. The race day weather will be hotter than you have raced in this year so be sure to stay hydrated – especially the day before when you pre-ride the course. Warm weather will make the camping there a lot of fun, though. Contact Ms. Babington & Ms. Pettigrew for campsite location info.
Remember that online pre-registration for the SoCal League Finals at Vail Lake May 1st closes on Tuesday! Save a few $ and pre-register now!
Also, if you plan to race at the State Championships (a great race location near Solvang; ask team mates from last year), see below. There will be two or three times as many students at the state championships as there were at the SoCal League races. It will be very exciting to race with that many competitors at the same time.

The 2011 California State High School Mountain Biking Championships flyer is now posted on the website. It has all the information you need regarding registration, camping, lodging, and qualification.
Though we are still a month away from the race there are already over 100 riders registered. If you are qualified and plan on attending please register ASAP
Fields are capped at 100 riders and some fields could fill. This means you could qualify for States but not have a spot. Registration is first-come first-served and can be completed online in the Pit Zone.
As an added benefit to our California NICA racers this race will be a qualifying race for USA Cycling Cross-Country Nationals being held in Sun Valley, ID this July 14-17. Information on qualification criteria is on the race flyer.
