Mountain Biking is a healthy active and safe sport that introduces high school students to unique trail travel while enjoying diverse, forest ecosystems. Mountain Biking challenges riders to navigate twisty fast single-track, technical climbs and gnarly forest descents with speed and efficiency.
About The High School Race Series
The Durham High School Series is a grassroots race series designed to get new students into the fun, safe and healthy sport of Mountain Biking! This series has been around for 10 years, and has been brought to you by Superfly Racing for the past 5 seasons.
The series this year rocks again with 4 races to challenge high school and elementary school age mountain bike racers. The race series has proven to be a great introduction to the sport as well as excellent development for riders and school teams participating in the OFSAA sanctioned Ontario Challenge MTB Race!
(NOTE: Please note that all racers MUST be accompanied by their teacher or assigned school representative in order to race; per school board insurance requirements.)
