Welcome back to my second mountain biking post!! This post we will be going over the topic of racing and teams. There are many types of mountain bike races, the first one is cross country. If you’re racing cross country then you will be racing with everyone else in the race so you’ll have to pass people to make your way to the top. The second type of racing is downhill. Downhill racing is not only a type of racing but its a whole other type of mountain biking. When you’re racing downhill you’ll most likely be on a bike that is designed for it and well you’re going downhill but its not just as easy as that; there are big obstacles and jumps and tables. Then there’s enduro racing, enduro is a race were you’re doing everything, uphill, downhills, skills, technical, and more, but the cool thing about enduro is that you don’t have the pressure of someone passing you because its all timed. You get timed at the start and then each person goes and whoever got the fastest time wins. That’s really all for racing but there’s many more types of races. The second thing I’m going to talk about is teams. You can join a racing team and you’ll go to practices and then after a little bit you and your team will start racing. If you want to sign up for a team look them up because they are everywhere. Your school might even have one. That’s all thanks for listening!
