Race Series

IICL Race Series

One of the great things about a NICA League, which separates us from other youth cycling development programs, is we produce our own youth-specific events. This means we pick out race venues and work directly with landowners and managers to produce the highest quality youth development race courses and events. The kids get a stage of their own, away from adult competitions and we strive for safety and fun above all other factors.

We are so excited to be partnering with these various landowners and managers at all of these venues represent some of the best riding, camping, and beauty Idaho is known for.  Additionally, all of these venues have made a significant commitment to the sport of mountain biking as they all have invested in a purpose-built trail system specifically engineered to accommodate beginner to advanced riders.

2021 Race Series COVID Statement

As we continue to monitor the COVID situation here in Idaho, we are confident that we will be hosting a full race series this fall.  We have developed several contingency plans for our race weekend format in the event we need to operate with limited capacity restrictions at any of our venues.  We hope to announce which of these formats we will proceed with by 6/30/21, however if 2020 taught us anything it’s that things can change rapidly and we need to be ready to adapt on the fly.  That being the case, we are adjusting some rules around series points, team competition, etc. that won’t change the overall experience for our racers, but will allow us to deal with potential impacts due to the ongoing challenges related to running events of our size/scale in a COVID reality.    

We understand that uncertainty may cause some families to wait to register for races until a decision is made on what the race format will be.  We support you in that approach and our registration process reflects this.  As in years past, we have a two-part registration fee.  In order to participate in any NICA events (team practices, summer camps, races, etc.) a rider must pay for the IICL Membership fee.  This fee is non-refundable and goes toward covering the expenses of insurance for all riders and coaches, coach registration fees, coach licensing costs and normal league operating expenses.  For all riders who want to participate in optional league races and summer camps, an additional fee is required for each of those events.  These fees varies by event and are subject to the IICL Weather Cancellation and Refund Policy.  Full details of the IICL fees can be found on our Participation Fees webpage.

Dates and locations have been set (see below) with further details available later this spring/summer.  In the meantime, mark your calendars and prepare for another great IICL race series this fall.
