612MTB, our middle school mountain bike team, raced through woods and prairie over a 3.75-mile track to place 2nd out of 11 teams in their division in the first race of the season on August 26 in Austin, MN. Congratulations to all of the athletes participating!

The 612MTB team consists of South Minneapolis mountain bike teams making up one large group that practices together, shares coaches and equipment, and pits together at races. The middle school team is made up of 7th and 8th graders riding for their future high school: Washburn, Southwest, South, and MPLS Southside Composite, which is made up of Minneapolis students whose high school does not have a team. Fourteen JPS students raced for Washburn High last weekend.

The team has 5 more races this year, finishing out the season at the State Championships on October 27 and 28. We wish them all the best in their future races!
