East Lake High School MTB team Jersey with our logo

Weather is looking to roll in Saturday afternoon so we are looking to get the race off without any problems. We have already been in touch with the powers to be at Balboa Park and will be good to race unless it is just simply dumping rain. The trails are extremely sustainable and soak up the water amazing especially coming out of the recent drought.

The Balboa Park race is back and is always a great time! This will be a fun race for all ability levels to try out some urban mountain biking. The best part of this event is that it serves as a great fundraiser for the Eastlake High School Mountain Bike team.  So grab your family and friends and come out and join us for a great time!

Ugly sweater competition just added!  Come dressed in your favorite ugly sweater and you could win a $50 Gift Card to Target.
