Welcome to Colorado’s premier junior development mountain bike program
The SMBA Team builds champions in sport and in life. The team is a camaraderie based program that cheers every rider on through their individual success, in which riders learn to challenge themselves, set goals and work hard. SMBA offers riders the chance to give back to the community, be advocates for cycling, to build good sportsmanship and become amazing riders. Through the SMBA progression riders dedicate time to skill mastery in the early stages of the sport that provide for success, safety, and of course FUN!
SMBA team programs include:
Advanced coaching, singletrack trail riding, community stewardship, “Big Buddy, Little Buddy” mentoring, special events, fun days, skills intensives, optional races and more. SMBA athletes learn about ALL elements of the sport of mountain biking including cross country, dual slalom, enduro, short track, downhill and more. It is recommended that athletes have participated in at least one camp prior to starting Team.
The SMBA Team starts training in February with the Preseason and Spring Training after school and/or on weekends. Spring training and riding is an important part of building strength for summer riding and racing and is highly encouraged.
Following spring training is two summer sessions, one at the beginning of the summer and on at the end. Summer riding is offered all day, almost every day, with Team rides Monday-Thursday and add-on Skills Intensives and racing Friday-Sunday most weekends.
In the Fall SMBA once again offers weekday and/or weekend training rides. The fall riding is one of the best times to be out on the bike in the front range!
Van transportation is now available for our team programs starting Summer 2021!
