Mountain Sports Team
It’s time to take your mountain biking to the next level! Join the Crested Butte Mountain Sports Mountain Bike Team (CBMST) and be a part of the most comprehensive program in the valley for progressing skills both on and off the bike. If you are into gravity based downhill, cross-country or enduro (which combines DH & XC) we have a group for you. CBMST will take advantage of access to the diverse trail network of the Evolution Bike Park as well as the famous singletrack trails throughout the Gunnison Valley. Recommended age for CBMST biking is 9 years old and older, with mountain biking experience and appropriate reliable equipment.
CBMST offers a flexible scheduling option again for the 2017 summer season. You are able to sign up for the entire 11 week summer, 2 days a week, which will equate to 22 sessions throughout the season (best deal per day) or if you have a busy summer planned you may sign up for a minimum of 8 pre-scheduled sessions over the 11 weeks that will efficiently custom fit your schedule.
This year, Griggs Orthopedics is extending the gOgirl program and partnering with CBMR's Mountain Sports Team, to develop the gOgirl Mountain Sports Team. The program will be offered starting summer 2017, two days a week. Each day will start with an important life lesson directly linked to a mountain biking or other sporting skill, followed by lift-served and other trail riding at the upper end of the valley, in addition to many other fun activities. Both entities are excited about the partnership, in hopes of providing the most robust athletic program for young girls in the valley.
The gOgirl program was started by Griggs Orthopedics in 2015, as a mountain biking program for Gunnison Valley female youth. Now in its third year, the program falls under the gO Initiative, a (pending) 501c3 Colorado Corporation intended to educate, inspire and develop athletes of all ages and abilities in mountain sports. As with other gO Initiative programs, we provide financial support and opportunities to optimize a strong body and mind through functional fitness, healthy lifestyle guidance and achievement. The gOgirl Program has always focused on developing confidence both on and off the trails by giving them the resources they need to not only become a successful competitive or non-competitive athlete, but also a successful member of our community or any community in which they live. Griggs orthopedic scholarships are available for the gO girls. Please email Stevie Kremer at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
CBMST groups will be organized based on athletes’ interest, ability level, age and gender. During the first week coaches and athletes will work together to establish groups and determine the right fit for each athlete. Riding trails at the Evolution Bike Park and other trails around the valley will present a lot of great opportunities to develop a wide skill set. After a day of riding the group will learn about bike maintenance and enjoy the other amenities around the CBMR base area.
