Bay Area Middle School Mountain Biking Competitive Series

2020 Middle School Series Information

This year, our Bay Area Middle School Mountain Biking (BAMMB) series will consist of four competitive, short-track races and three community building, non-competitive group mountain bike rides. Teams will receive scores for the placings of their top riders at the races and the number of middle school team members who participate in the non-competitive rides.

Team scoring: Team scores will be the sum of the scores from a team’s top five finishers from each race and participation-based team score from each fun ride.

Individual Scoring: Individual scores are the sum of a participant’s three best finishing scores from the races and their participation scores from each non-competitive, fun ride.
