Brady White placed first in the Junior Racing League XC High School Varsity Mountain Bike race in Temecula on March 27, racing a 22-mile three-lap course. Brady also secured first place in the three-race series.

Coming in third in the short track XC race on Friday left him ranked second in the national standings. Brady will be traveling to Fayetteville, Ark. for a four-race series in April competing against top riders in the world, and then on to Utah for a two-race international series.

“I have been training hard and am grateful to have incredible coaches and amazing support on and off the bike,” Brady said in a prepared statement. “It felt good to put all the work I’ve been doing the last year to the test. To be honest, the opportunity to even participate in a race venue again was a dream come true.”
