The Spin Sisters Race Team consists of members of all riding skill levels interested in participating in ABA Mountain Bike races. This team is not exclusive to licensed racers; it is also for members who are interested in trying out a race for the first time or learning more about the competitive sport of mountain biking.
Learn to Race Program
For Spin Sisters who've never entered a mountain bike race but want to give it a try.
We combine a classroom session with a couple of outdoor sessions including a couple of 'mock races' to get the feeling for what it is like to be in a race situation. Finally our graduates are ready for their first ABA-sanctioned race!

Already a racer? 2013 is the inaugural year for the Spin Sisters Race Team! We are excited to build on the racing momentum that has grown within our club and more formally support our racers.

Iron Maiden XC Race
In June, 2011 Spin Sisters hosted our first provincially-sanctioned race event: the Iron Maiden XC Race in Canmore, Alberta (this event was previously known as the Iron Lung). It was highly successful, we had a great turnout from the wider racing community, despite the damp weather.
On June 9, 2012 we are running this race again, only this year the weather will be fantastic (well, odds are it wouldn't be worse!). If you are interested in racing or want to help out with the organization, we need volunteers to help set up the race course, be course marshalls, water station helpers, timing tent recorders and much more. If you want to help out AND race, there will be ample opportunity to do both!

24 Hours of Adrenalin
In 2012 we have a reservation for a single 6-10 person team entry. We are currently recruiting more racers to take part in this fun, team event! You don't have to decide right away, but if the date is approaching and you find yourself interested in giving it a try, the 24 Hours event is possibly the most fun way to get involved in racing!
