WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE NORTHWEST COMPOSITE WOLVES BOYS AND GIRLS MOUNTAIN BIKING TEAMS!
The sport of mountain biking is growing at a rapid rate and we are so excited to have it in our area.
We currently serve a wide geographic area in MN and ND, ranging from Wadena, the F/M metro to Wahpeton/Breckenridge and are looking to welcome new team members from more communities in the region!
Our team goal is to teach middle and high school students the skills, and love of mountain biking no matter their skill level. We have built a welcoming and encouraging culture for all riders, of all levels, to achieve their personal goals. Any student entering 6th-12th grade the fall of 2022 is eligible to be a member of the team; there are no tryouts and no bench warmers. Our program is fun, exciting, and geared towards learning how to ride and race cross country mountain bikes. Team members will learn basic through advanced skills of braking, shifting, body position, cornering, ascending, descending, and obstacles through various on-bike workouts. They will also learn about trail and bike maintenance, proper nutrition, and strength training.
Racing – We participate in Minnesota Cycling Association’s race series. It is a five race season in which riders accrue points for themselves as well as for the team. The top 10% (minimum 5, maximum 10) in each category will receive medals at the races as well as the top three teams.
Recreational – Any rider that does not want to race; everyone rides and trains in small student/coach groups which are based on bike/trail confidence and skills.
