NICA Competitive Mountain Biking

Our NICA Moutain Biking Program is our competitive cycling team. Our team competes in the NICA Maryland league.

The Prime Ability NICA mountain biking team is an exceptional competitive mountain biking team affiliated with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). Based in Washington DC, this pioneering team stands out as the first mountain biking team of color in the area, now entering its third year of operation.

Founded with the mission of keeping kids off the street and promoting diversity and inclusivity within the sport of mountain biking, the Prime Ability NICA team is a trailblazer in creating opportunities for young riders of color to excel in a competitive and exhilarating environment. By participating in NICA events, races, and competitions, team members not only showcase their passion for mountain biking but also challenge traditional norms and perceptions within the cycling community.

The team's journey over the past three years has been marked by dedication, perseverance, and the unwavering spirit of its riders. Through rigorous training, skill development, and a strong sense of camaraderie, the Prime Ability NICA mountain biking team has cultivated a tight-knit community that extends beyond the trails. The team members serve as inspirations and role models, not only for their peers but for aspiring young cyclists of color across the region.

As the team continues to evolve and make its mark on the NICA circuit, it symbolizes the transformative power of sports and the ability to break down barriers. The Prime Ability NICA mountain biking team embodies the values of determination, diversity, and unity, demonstrating that with shared goals and a passion for adventure, young individuals can rewrite the narrative of what is possible in the world of competitive mountain biking.
