Youth Mountain Bike Racing in Oconee County
The youth mountain bike racing series consists of four regular-season races plus the Peach State Championship for qualifying high school students.
The Race Series is a refreshing form of competition
The Georgia Cycling Association Youth Mountain Biking Race Series, presented by Northside Hospital, is for riders of all levels. Whether you’re on pace for a podium position, or just trying to improve from race to race, our coaches will be there to support you and help you reach your goals.
Race weekends rock. There’s camping, healthy competition, and a sense of community that’s hard to find in other youth sports. Although racing is optional, we encourage our riders and parents to participate. Most do, and nobody ever regrets it.

Thanks for asking! Prior to every race, we'll send out a sign-up form to parents.
