Cheyenne Mountain High School Mountain Bike Team
Started in 2009 with 7 high school mountain bike athletes, the Cheyenne Mountain High School Mountain Bike Team has grown in 2018 to more than 35 riders. Embracing the Colorado League National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) motto of
“building strong minds, bodies, and character one pedal stroke at a time”, the team includes girls, boys, parents, volunteers, NICA-certified coaches, and generous local sponsors.
Led by Coaches Larry DeWitt, Doug Bursnall and Paul Cavendar, team volunteers contributed 98 hours to race weekends and enthusiastically participated in weekend spirit contests. Open to riders of all abilities, teammates are vocal supporters of all teams and riders on the racecourse, celebrating everyone’s personal accomplishments. The team contributes time to local non-profits such as Kids on Bikes, and trail maintenance, giving back to the community.
