We had THREE riders from the Oregon League win NICA awards from our first season!
Aimee Baldwin of Salem Composite - “When I think about my experience with NICA, the first word that comes to mind is community. As I started mountain biking with Oregon NICA League, everyone I met had this passion for mountain biking and they all seemed stoked to share it with new people. To me, it was inspiring and humbling to be around these people, because they showed me how to overcome challenges, and have taught me the joys of life’s adventures. I am very grateful for my experience with the NICA community, and I hope to meet more riders to share my love of mountain biking with.”
Tanner Hawley of Salem Composite - “I don’t know where to start, NICA provides such an amazing opportunity for student-athletes such as myself. The amazing people at NICA have successfully created a race environment where all people can feel welcome while competing. Each race course is precisely thought out to equally match the level of competition and just having fun. I look forward to working with my NICA team to further the development of mountain biking trails around Oregon.”
Dave Schyberg of the NorCal and Oregon Leagues - “NICA has created something very special. What these leagues are doing for high school kids is incredible, constantly shaping these kids to be courageous and strong. There is so much more to this than just riding a bike in the woods, it is unfathomable where the growth that these kids get to experience will take them later on in life. Hopefully, it will take them right back to where it started like it did for me.” ... See MoreSee Less
