The Davis Mountain Biking Team is rolling through the competition. With the season ending, the team is happy with the work that they’ve put in.

“I really enjoyed being on the team, and (is) excited for next years season,” said Daniel Knowlton.

The team has done a great job at every one of their races, and had another one on the 27th. The Mountain Biking team is not actually a team funded by the high school, it is a club that is run by Mr. Costley, a government teacher here. They have a race most weekends, and are competing against others as well as their previous times.

This club has a growing popularity with a lot of new arrivals this year. The team is open to anyone who is willing to buy their own equipment and find transportation to races. Races are held at various places around Utah and sometimes even out of state. A popular place for the team to practice is at Snowbasin, during the summer.

This is a fun activity for anyone who likes to ride and be outside. The sport is dangerous, and injuries are not uncommon. Teams use protective clothing and guards to minimize chance of injury. The team this year has been relatively injury-less on their win streak.
