Many of you want to be part of an amazing community of women who mountain bike. A community of women to train and race with. This atmosphere of encouragement and support produces results and is, lets be honest, a ton of fun! That’s why for 2016 we have added even more progression to the team environment. The details are below!
Pre-Season Goal Building
Get stoked and into the race spirit with one 1/2 hour consult with the Team Coach, Jaclyn Delacroix from Ozmosis Training.
For those new to racing in 2016, some of our more experienced racers will be stepping up as Mentors to help you on your journey to becoming a successful mountain biker racer.
Once you are selected for the MB Race Team, you will have your meeting with our coach Jaclyn from Ozmosis Training. After which, if you would like mentorship, you will be assigned an appropriate Mentor. You can expect at least one ride with your Mentor as well as being able to ask them any questions, big or small, that you may have and share training tips so you are as prepared as possible for your events.
Team Building Days
We will be in Las Vegas this March for our MB Spring Training Camp. Join us for some early season training to get you ready for your events from March 11 – 16! Once we are in the swing of things, we’ll have another tune-up team session in Whistler.
In 2016 we will be concentrating on more structured training to help MB Race Team members work on specific skills to make them more competitive on the race track.
Fully supported BC Enduro Series
Interested in doing the BC Enduro series, but worried about logistics, accommodations, travel, course pre-rides, last minute bike maintenance, and probably a few things we haven’t thought of? Then you’ll be happy to know that one of the teams focal points this year will be the entire BC Enduro series.Â Coach Jaclyn will arrange suitable (and affordable) group accommodations as well as taking care of all the logistics to get to, from and around each of the races. All you need to do is turn up ready to race!

Personalized team member profile to help with your current and future racing goals
It doesn’t matter if you only plan to race for one year or want to make racing your future, it’s important to have a professional looking profile. This is what future sponsors will want to see and it’s just another way to show you that we are taking this seriously (in a fun way of course). An athlete profile will grow with you over time, the more you race and volunteer and contribute to the community the larger it will grow. We want to enable you to be able to promote yourself!
Professional quality photos, including casual and “in actionâ€ to help with your future race profile (location may be prohibitive but we will do our best)
We have our very own Team Photographer Gina Hopper ! Gina loves photography and bikes, and in 2016 has her own race related goal in competing in the BCBR! We will set up a number of â€œphotography specificâ€ rides throughout the year to give as many Bunnies as possible the chance to get quality photographs.
The Official Muddbunnies Race Team Bike Shop
On top of all this we have an amazing shop sponsor through Different Bikes in North Vancouver. DB has been a Bunnie supporter for a number of years now so it was no surprise to us when they stepped up and have offered to help support our team in as many ways as possible. Duncan and his team at DB will always go above and beyond to make sure that every Bunnie has everything she needs, pre race tune-ups, new kit at a killer deal, maybe just a friendly piece of advice. On top of this they have offered to extend their Muddbunnies race team deals to any member of the team, no matter what part of the world you are in, it’s only a small shipping fee away.
The Team Kit
For 2016, to be part of the race team there will be a $100 fee. This fee will include the above perks as well as one team kit. The team kit includes one jersey (short or long sleeve), a 1/2hr consult with Team Coach Jaclyn about your season goals and how to achieve them, as well as a gift for your ride. Additional jerseys, shorts or other merchandise can be purchased at cost. Once we have received your application you will receive a Paypal invoice for the $100. This amount will be fully refundable minus the Paypal fee if you are unable to meet the race team requirements.
