Youth Mountain Bike Racing


Race Update: At Wednesday’s mountain bike race, we have added a new 8 and under category (6, 7, 8 yr. olds) with an alternate course.

Children should have experience trail riding and parents are encouraged to ride with their child. The race start time remains the same at 5:30, registration closes at 5:15. For weather concerns or updates check back here or TYO facebook page.


Wednesday at Wakefield Race Dates Announced and TYO once again leads the Junior Race Series!

Registration is only available day of the race and closes at 5:15, race start is 5:30.

Recognizing that kids want the additional challenges of competitive organized sports, TrailsforYouth.Org has partnered with several current race organizers to include a junior race component and developed a Youth Only Mountain Bike Series. With this series, young riders can unleash their competitive side and challenge themselves.     Providing this level of riding creates an opportunity for the more experienced bikers to challenge themselves, and furthers our mission to provide opportunities for more kids to be active outdoors.    

Ready...set....GO!And for those children who want to compete, but don’t have the opportunity or equipment necessary, TrailsforYouth.Org can provide access to bikes, as well as mentor-led rides to develop skills, confidence and experience.     

The generous support of our donors allows us to provide scholarships to children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate.   

All racers MUST wear a helmet and TrailsforYouth.Org recommends that all riders pre-ride the race course prior to each race.
