JUNE-uary 2012: A Win Win When it Comes to High Country Fun.

This January in particular has been more like JUNE-uary in some parts of the world. Team CLIF Bar skier Jenn Berg has no problem finding a good time in the mountains no matter what the conditions.  Below Jenn gives us a glimpse of what she has been up to and reminds us all that life truly is about perspective. When life serves up snow, we ride POW; and when the sun shines (and the snow is tough to find), there's nothing like a mountain bike ride in the middle of winter.

It’s another

Lars Sternberg Takes His Bikes Where Bikes Have Never Been Before

Team CLIF rider Lars Sternberg shared this video with us in which he takes his trail bike to some places bikes have never been before.  Well, maybe they have been there, but nobody knows about it.  I guess they didn't have a film crew.  Just hiking some of this stuff looks treachourous enough - add in a significant amount of speed and it must just get more tough.  Check out those roots!  Get rowdy!

High School Mountain Bike League Looks East to Expand

10 years ago, all Berkeley High math teacher Matt Fritzinger was hoping to do was start a road cycling club for interested students.  By 2010, what started with that simple mission had turned into The National Interscholastic Cycling Association, with 6 leagues stretching from California to Minnesota.  With those leagues now successfully in place, NICA is looking east to turn competitive high school mountain biking into a nationwide phenomenon.

 
 
 
Starting July 4th, Fritzinger, now the league’s Executive Director, will be joined by Development Director, Ben Capron, for a 6-day whirlwind tour of the East Coast with the hopes of gaining foundational support for creating new leagues in the region.  The ultimate goal is to offer mountain biking as a sport in high schools coast to coast by 2020.
