Donning brightly colored spandex. Slogging up and over mountains. Getting plastered by mud. Not exactly most high schoolers’ idea of fun. However, hundreds of kids in the NorCal High School Cycling League couldn’t imagine a better way to spend their weekends. For Eliel, high school bike racing is a competitive outlet at the highest level. For Carlos, it is a means to escape the rough neighborhoods of South Sacramento. For Mackinzie and Allie, it is a chance to break into a sport traditionally dominated by the boys. These are the kids of Singletrack High, a feature-length documentary about high school mountain bike racing currently being produced by Pedal Born Pictures.
