Two Conferences, Same Great Ride!

The Texas Interscholastic Mountain Bike League proudly announces our bold plans for Season XIII, presented by Trek. In 2024, you can expect the same great experience, now with two dynamic conferences: North and South. In this next chapter of our journey, student-athletes will enjoy the camaraderie and competition they have grown to expect, but with activities closer to home.

Season XIII

This season will feature a total of seven races. Each conference will race in four regular-season races and the final championship race. The series will include a combination of single conference races and two joint conference races followed by a winner-takes-all State Championship.
