Mountain bikers focus on getting better at mountain biking every Tuesday, Thursday, for 1-2 hours. Here are some tips from your fellow mountain bikers on the DPMS mountain bike team.

“You need to be aware of your surroundings because you could hit something while you are biking and that can slow you down in the races, you could also get really hurt,” said Elizabeth Vance 7th grade.

There are 149 registered students on the CCHS mountain bike team, according to the CCHS mountain biking web site.

“You should always wear a helmet when you are biking because if you fall your head will be safe from anything that hits it, and you won’t get any head injuries,” Alex Vance, 8th grade.

A hard tail mountain bike is one of the best bikes to use during races because it is so light, and it is very durable according to singleriders.com .

“You should always look ahead 20-30 feet because something unexpected go happed like a bump you were not aware of. You should always be aware because you don’t want to fall and hurt yourself,” Mike Jones, 8th grade.

    The statement that you will never get a head injury on head impact with a helmet is inaccurate because their are lots of people who are injured otherwise. Even my brother was out the whole season with a head injury. (with a helmet)
