Team Booger is proud to support riders competing on the national stage at the Cross Country Mountain Bike National Championships at Bear Creek Mtn Resort in Pennsylvania. Throughout the race period in early July, Boogers braved crashes, intense weather, steep competition, and tough courses while putting out their very best efforts. It's been a long season of focused training for these riders, and they were rewarded for their hard work and persistence.
Top 10 performances including a short track qualifier win by Aran Connolly followed by 2nd in the final, a 6th place by Stella Scholz in the short track and 8th in the XC race, and a 5th place in the short track final and 8th in XC for Jaxon Williams. These riders have been training hard throughout the winter and spring, balancing their athletics with studies. These achievements are hard fought and well deserved.
A huge congrats to all the riders and enormous high fives to the support crews that made it possible. Their help keeping bikes rolling smooth and riders fed and prepped are an important part of our success as a whole. Well done Aran, Stella, Jaxon, and Dillon!!

Boogers Across Washington and Beyond
We believe in the strength of community and the positive impacts of teamwork. That's why we're so excited to welcome more than a dozen new Booger riders to our program across Washington state this summer in Spokane, Wenatchee and the Methow Valley. New members have embraced the Booger ethos of riding hard and giving back- group rides, trail building, donations to causes they care about, and fostering community together. We're grateful to our leaders in these communities for their energy to support youth cycling across the state.
