612MTB Team/Southwest HS Mountain Bike Team

Please visit our team website here - https://www.612mtb.com/

The person to contact at Southwest is José Fresco, Spanish teacher, room W-319.

The 612MTB mountain bike team includes 7th to 12th grade racers from Washburn High School, Southwest High School, South High School and and a Minneapolis Southside Composite (which is composed of students who are home schooled, students who attend private schools and don't have a team, and students who live in Minneapolis but attend schools outside the district that don't have a team).

Practices are on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays. Races are on Sundays. We don't practice on Saturdays that we have a race. The last race is a two day event because there are more than 60 teams racing and more than 1400 riders.

All four teams practice together, but during the races, each high school races individually. Also, each rider races for his/her team and earns points towards his category/class and towards the team. Points are awarded for each rider, 1st place 500, 2nd, 495, 3rd, 490, etc. Only the best five riders' points (per team) are counted toward the team overall points for that particular race, and there has to be at least 2 female riders. If theren't any female riders, only the three best male riders' points will count toward the toal.

Since Southwest started racing (2015), it has finished second every time (2015, 2016 and 2017). However, we have (and have had) some of the best males and female riders in the state. Foss Kerker, Adlai Sinkler, Torsten Brikema, Henry Hall, Zoe Camp, Kasia Bednarski and Sudie Hall. This year we hope to do well because Kasia, Sudie, Zoe, and Henry are still riding very strong.
