La Crosse Team

The La Crosse Area Mountain Bike Team started out 11 years ago with less than 20 kids. Today, it is nearly 80 strong, consisting of middle schoolers and high schoolers from WI and MN, 23% of which are female. We have nearly 40 volunteer coaches and travel around the state to race at 5 different venues where we camp with our family and friends each fall.

Sound fun? It is! Join us!
