Mountain Biking at NNEHSMTB Championship Race - October 31, 2018

. Not since the series opener have all 24 teams raced at the same time, and with nearly 400 riders, it was quite an event!

It was a wet and technically challenging course, but despite the conditions, our racers came through with an awesome performance. Abby Ingram, racing in her last race as a Dublin student, had the best race of her career and finished first in the girls B class race, putting her as one of the top girl riders in the series. AJ Lee and Oren Robblee had top 20 finishes in the boys A race, finishing 15th and 18th respectively. Oren ended the season with top freshman honors in the Western Division. Imogen VonMertens earned a podium finish placing 3rd in the girls C race

Dublin finished 6th in the championship and ended the season with a 4th place overall in the Western Division.

It was a great end to a great season, and we thank our senior leaders and captains, AJ Lee, Abbby Ingram and Pete Spang, for all the work they put into helping make the season what it was.

Mountain Biking at Cardigan Mountain School - September 26, 2018

The mountain biking team traveled to Cardigan Mountain for the first Western Division race of the series.  It was a technical course made harder by rain and mud, and it left a few broken bikes in it's wake.  Despite the tricky conditions, Abby Ingram placed 3rd in the B race and AJ Lee managed to place 6th in the A race after two crashes dropped him a few places. 

The New Outing Club

The New Outing Club

In locating the new Slopeside Dormitory, we had to remove the old Arts Building which served in recent years as our Outing Club. The Outing Club was home to our Mountain Biking, Nordic Skiing, Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding programs.  We originally intended to put the new Outing Club into the basement of the Slopeside Dormitory but thought better due to the impact on the height of the building and the potential for fumes and fire from ski waxing.
