Young Guns Coordinators

 

  • Mark Flett a seasoned racer is a long time member of GMBC and experienced coach. Mark attends multiple state and national events and understands what it takes for this age group to compete at the highest level.

The support crew that facilitates the Young Guns program are volunteers and are stoked to give you the opportunity and we are lucky to have a bunch of older generation members who are racing at National level offer to mentor and be a part of this program as well, giving back to the younger riders as they move into older age categories.  How awesome is that?
