Mountain Bike Race Team
Blackhawk Composite Mountain Bike Team is a co-ed composite team for 6th through 12th grade students in the Barneveld, Cross Plains, Middleton, Mount Horeb, and Waunakee school districts.
It is part of the Wisconsin High School Cycling League which is one of the many leagues in the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).
The goal of NICA, the Wisconsin High School Cycling League, and our team is to build strong minds, bodies, characters, and community through cycling. Contrary to traditional youth sports, there are no try-outs or cuts from the team. Every Blackhawk Composite student athlete rides at every practice and has the opportunity to participate in as many or as few races as they would like.
Yes, Blackhawk Composite is a mountain biking team, but cycling is only used as a vehicle to help the student athletes develop themselves, and less of the focus. The student athletes are encouraged to participate at their own pace, provided guidance on how to handle physical challenges, and are required to set and work towards achieving goals throughout the season.
