Q: What does Rouleur mean?
A: An all-rounder, often one of the hardest riders in the peloton; a Rouleur can excel in all different terrains and conditions.

Q: What group do I fit in?
A: Depending on the riding ability of each athlete, this will dictate the level they will benefit from most….A rider who has ridden for a few years, and had some race experience locally or with their NICA program, could certainly be a good fit for our "race" team.  A smaller group of riders with a deep passion for racing and the sport will fit our “National” program, these riders will be selected based on your rider applications and will be invited by team directors to be on the “National” Team. They are expected to participate in the full national calendar with the team.

Q: Where will the training rides be held?
A: The majority of our training rides will be held in Salt Lake County in the South Valley area. Typically we will meet in the Corner Canyon area, with additional rides at locations TBD as the season takes shape. The Equestrian Center in the Corner Canyon area provides a location to work on skills, gain fitness, and also a parking lot which proves to be convenient for the vast majority of our riders.

Q: What do I need in terms of equipment?

A: Every team member will be expected to show up for training rides with a fully functional, well maintained bike, helmet, and hydration.

Q: Am I required to race?
A: Racing is encouraged for the race team but is not a requirement. We will provide support at an occasional local event as well as at the national team events which we hope you will be a part of!

Q: Why does the Race team train from March - June? 
A: The Local and National MTB Utah racing calendars generally go from early spring and right on into the fall.  Many of our riders will race throughout the year but with many of our kids also involved with NICA we have chosen to have our Race programs run from March to June so that kids can be prepared for NICA season without doing too much and burning out.

Q: Why would this team benefit me? 
A: Our program has helped develop riders to compete at an international level.  Riders desiring to progress in the sport need direction and people with experience to ask questions to.  We have the experience to help riders navigate through the process and avoid many of the pitfalls that many riders make, choosing to do it alone.  The skills and info learned will not only provide a better racing experience but will have a focus on making life a better experience too.
