    Albany MTB represents at National Board

    The Albany High Mountain Bike Team was the guest of honor at the inaugural Board of Directors meeting of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) in Berkeley, California Saturday. The meeting brought cyclists and organizers from Colorado, Washington, and SoCal together, including Dave Wiens (of Leadville 100 fame) and Gary Fisher, to interface on issues concerning High School Mountain Bike Racing.

    NICA is the consequence of the success of the NorCal High School Racing League founded at Berkeley High in 2000 by Matt Fritzinger. The constant development of the program in the MTB talent-rich Bay Area and the League’s subsequent growth became a focus for interested cyclists and youth organizations and brought national.

    Sunday’s meeting was a watershed event for youth cycling. The excitement and good vibes in the room were unmistakable.The Albany High NorCal racers were brought to the meeting to give everyone a chance make real-time, first-hand contact with the student racers. The audience was eager to get to know these young athletes.

    Varsity racers Charlotte Perry-Houts(Sr.), Miguel Mejia (Jr.), and Girls Captain JV Aviva Prager (Sr.) took questions from the field about recruiting, workouts, racing, academics, goals, and their futures in cycling. AHSMTB Director Michael Mejia engaged interest on issues of training, group riding, and team development.

    The mini-event was exceedingly validating for the young racers in their fresh 2010 kits as they candidly shared their thoughts with the group. It is flattering, indeed, to be invited by NorCal to represent their work and to have a room full of great cyclists learning from you. Further it is exciting to know that what was said today might influence young cyclists all over the country.

    Thanks, Pauly

    We might not be here were it not for you and a lot of other people along the way. It's like someone tossing you a tube in he middle of nowhere when you were just getting started. We're not trying to figure it out anymore or just survive. We're a working team wit a clear identity, and by Albany standards, just a bit of attitude.
