Clayton Valley Charter’s mountain bike team has a roster of 24 riders during their fourth season as a club team. They are part of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association NorCal League. Head coach Eric Skow and his assistants oversee a roster of 24 riders from 9th through 12th grade. The team practices four days a week beginning in December.
In addition to riding local trails on Mt. Diablo, Black Diamond, Lime Ridge and Castlerock Park, they venture further away on weekends. The spring season goes through the State championship in June. The Ugly Eagles bikers will travel to Redding, Petaluma, Folsom, LaGrange and Lower Lake, where they will race against 52 high schools in the South Conference section of NICA NorCal.
