Races: SMBA travels as a team to some of the best mountain bike events in the state and country. Our racers and coaches work together to create an environment conducive to success. We travel, set up, and practice together, working on many elements of race preparation and execution. By working with team mates, racers are able to both share their strengths and access the collective knowledge and approach of the team.
