2015 Racing

Another awesome mountain bike season is coming to an end. Labor day weekend marking the 25th Annual Laddies Loppet weekend, the home race for the team, that saw most of the riders competing with fantastic results. Nice work everyone! Still plenty of great riding and racing to be had but a big thanks to all the riders who waved the flag for the Maplelag team this year. Good luck the rest of the year, especially to the cycling school league riders. Keep the wheels moving!!
