The Dublin School Mountain Bike team traveled to Proctor Academy for the opener of the Northern New England High School Mountain Bike Race Series. In a field of 265 riders and only 18 podium spots, Dublin had an impressive debut with 3 podium finishes.
In the girls' C race, Imogen VonMartens placed 2nd while Abby Ingram was right on her back wheel with 3rd. Eathan Hood, who was late finishing his practice lap and had the unfortunate starting position of nearly dead last in a field of 119 C class racers, somehow managed to pass almost the entire field in the span of 5 miles to catch a 3rd place finish in his first race.
Other highlights include AJ Lee and Sean Brown finishing 14th and 15th consecutively in the A division, Ella Rutledge getting a close 4th in the C girls race, and Lauren Ryder, in her first mountain bike race cracking the top 10 of the girls C field. Special mention must be made for Thomas Meiklejohn who joined the team the day before the race and, having never mountain biked before that day, had a strong finish and couldn't wait until the next one!
