• Mountain Biking

    2021 - 2022
    Head Coach: Andrew Sheppe

    Holderness is situated amidst some of the most varied and challenging mountain biking terrain in New England. We have ten trail networks within 15 minutes of campus, and on long days our coed team travels to regional destinations like Highland Bike Park and the Kingdom Trails. Once a week, we trade our bikes and helmets for picks and shovels to extend our on-campus single track network, which winds for about 7km through the woods behind Gallop Gymnasium. In addition to their daily adventure rides, students also compete in races through the Northern New England High School Mountain Bike League. Some of our riders join the team with riding and racing experience, while others join as raw beginners and discover a love for this life-long sport.

On Saturday the Mountain Bike team travelled to Vermont Academy for the New England League Championships. It was cold, wet, and muddy, and the Holderness riders tackled the course like the heros they are. As the race progressed, the trails changed from solid to semi-liquid, so every racer had to re-learn how to ride on each lap. We spun-out on climbs, skidded through corners, and occasionally fell over into the slop. The bikes and uniforms finished the race covered in brown, but the smiles shone through. Holderness finished fourth of 16 teams, beating our rivals Proctor for the first time this year. Our top five point-scorers were: Jack Diemar, Johnny Schaeffler, Reid Donovan, Clayton Surber and Tri-Captain Sacha Levine in her final league race.
