Mt. SAC Fat Tire Classic

There’s a first time for everything, this time it was a Mtn. Bike race. I’d never been to a bicycle race of any kind, much less a Mtn. Bike race, but here we are. This race, The Mt SAC Fat Tire Classic was held on the campus of the college I am currently attending. When you think of a Mtn. Bike race a college campus is hardly the first place you would likely hold such an event; however, the hills surrounding the college make a perfect place for riding. 

I volunteered my lens this year to assist the MT SAC welding program, a program in which I am involved, the race is sponsored by Skills USA. While the rest of the country may start feeling the effects of winter’s chill, the 90 degree temps made for a perfect day of racing, well…maybe just a bit on the hot side.

SkillsUSA is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and high school and college students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations, including health occupations. It was formerly known as VICA (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America)
