The North region race hosted in Uintah County by the Uintah High School Mountain Bike Team was a huge success over the weekend but the fun isn’t over yet. This weekend the team will host the South region in which they will also compete. The team and their families and volunteers worked with their own hands to build the mountain bike race track over the summer and their hard work has paid off for the local economy. According to one of the event organizers Trina Hedrick, each weekend of racing is expected to bring about 2500 individual racers and their families to Vernal. Volunteers could still be used this weekend to make the event a success. “By helping with setup,” shares Hedrick, “folks will be indirectly helping to support our local economy. It’s also a chance to support the kids on the team. They really worked their butts off to get that thing built before the races.” To learn more how you can help during the team’s very first home race, check out the Uintah High School Mountain Bike Team page on Facebook.
