I absolutely love being on Wasatch High School’s Mountain Bike Team. Our coaches, Bob Bills and Christian Faatz are awesome and so supportive. It is such a great time training with the team. The best part is going to the races with my teammates. The environment is amazing! Everyone is super friendly and encouraging. We have so much fun cheering each other on. Mountain Biking is an awesome sport because you can do it your whole life long, not just in high school.
Being on the Mountain Bike Team allows me to enjoy nature in the finest of ways! I love mountain biking and all of the fun that comes with it. I’m grateful for all of the cool people on the team, and for all of the friendships I’ve made.
The Mountain Bike Team is definitely the best thing I’ve been a part of at Wasatch. It’s so much fun to go riding around Heber Valley with your team, who honestly feel like family. Everyone is so supportive and encouraging, and the coaches are definitely the best I’ve ever had. They care so much about you and want to help you do your very best! I love mountain biking, it’s the best thing you can do!
I love participating on the Mountain Bike Team because it makes me feel stronger physically and mentally, helping me find my limits and teaching me important morals. Everyone should have the opportunity to be a part of the team because being on the same race course, tackling the same challenges builds a connection with your teammates that is unbeatable and something you can’t find in any other sport.
We emphasize, above all else to simply FINISH the race! Never quit unless there is injury or mechanical failure. This is a life long goal…never quit! Once a rider quits, it becomes easier later on and potentially habitual over time. Ride with no regrets. AN error is just a way to recognize a lack of experience and to not repeat it at the next race. I will never be at the finish line but, but I will see each student athlete at the exit chute of the race to congratulate them on finishing the race!
I have an immense love of cycling and I am happy to be able to work with the Wasatch High School Mountain Bike Team.
