All MMST kid cyclists finish Fall Century Ride

Fall Century Ride

Riding against fierce headwinds on one section of the High Sierra Fall Century route and battling equipment problems along the way, the kids of Mammoth Mountain Ski Team all completed the High Sierra Fall Century bike ride last Saturday.

"We had a great, great time," said one of the teams' coaches, Kevin Francis. "One of them had a flat tire but got help from a couple of women riders, and one of them bonked, but we got some food into him and he finished the ride."

The kids ranged in age from 12 to 18, evenly split between boys and girls. They split into two teams, a fast group and a not-so fast group.
