Mountain bikers hope to ride wheels of fortune

 Some of the best athletes that Xavier Prep has to offer will be on display on Sunday (Sept. 12) when the Xavier/Brophy Prep club mountain biking team competes in its first of four races this season.

This one will be at the Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, Xavier and Brophy combine to ride in the South Conference. The girls will ride in four groups on Sunday, at 11 a.m., 11:15, 11:40 and 11:45. The JV also will have its own race.

The team is being coached again by Rich Perrott.

The second race will be held on Sept. 26 at the Arizona Nordic Village in Flagstaff, with the third race on Oct. 10 at Pioneer Park in Prescott and the fourth race on Oct. 24 at the White Tank Regional Park in the west Valley community of Waddell.
