Riders earn points for their school at each race (the higher they finish, the more points they earn) and by completing Teen Trail Corp hours. TTC hours are volunteer hours riders, coaches, and family members can earn by maintaining bike trails or helping out with bike-related events. Each rider is required to earn 10 hours per season.

The team will travel to Cedar Glades Park in Hot Springs for Race #2 on Sept. 25.
