  3. Hi,

    My freshman daughter is really interesested in joining the team. She has raced for 3 years in TX NICA for middle school.

    Hi, Annie. Congratulations to your daughter on her racing and other cycling activities.To get answers to questions about the Lightfighters, please contact the head coach; contact info is in the PDF linked in this post.

  5. Annie Jenkins says:

    My family and I are considering a move to Monterey from CO, and my oldest daughter (16) has been on the Columbine High School mountain bike team for the past year. She would be entering as a junior and is a moderately experienced biker with 4 races under her belt as well as a myriad of group and individual rides. If we moved she would most likely attend Monterey High School.
    Would you be able to let us know more about your team, when the season starts, training and anything else of relevance?

    Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you,

    Annie Jenkins
