Welcome to the West Michigan Coyotes. We are a MTB racing team of student-athletes Grades 6-12 from across West Michigan. As of 2019, we have members from across the area, as far north as Grant, south to Sturgis and along the corridor from Grand Rapids to Muskegon (including Forest Hills, EGR, Spring Lake and Grand Haven). We abide by three principles:
- Mountain biking is a great sport for everyone. Starting while you’re still in middle school or high school sets you up for a lifetime of fun in the woods.
- Racing is fun, and racing together is even more fun. Our team, while competitive and excited to win a team championship some day, really revolves around having a good time on your bike.
- Sportsmanship is contagious.
The Coyotes showed well at two different races this weekend.
Saturday – Skirts in the Dirt
On Saturday, Coyotes Anabel Miller, Addison Forrester and Olivia Miller competed in the 6th annual Skirts in the Dirt, an all-woman race, put on as a fundraiser for the West Michigan Mountain Bike Alliance. In the “Dirt Diva” expert/open race, Anabel placed 4th and Addison 11th. In the “Squirts in the Dirt” 12-and-under race, Olivia took 11th.
Sunday – Glacial Hills MMBA CPS
On Sunday, Easton Foster and Haydon Frehr raced at the Glacial Hills MMBA CPS XC race, their final race in this series prior to the MiSCA season kickoff at Addison Oaks next week. Easton secured a state championship with his first-place finish (CONGRATS, Easton!) and Haydon took 4th place to conclude his CPS season as a strong contender in the 14-and-under division.
The Coyotes now enter their MiSCA race season with the 6 race series taking place over the next 9 weeks.
