More stories from Ryder Hutton


Maddy Pernat, a junior at Chanhassen High School, has been mountain biking for 2 years now, but has been biking on her own time for much longer.

She joined the team her freshman year after seeing a flyer around the lunch room. “I was playing soccer at the time, but I still wanted to check it out, so I went and I really thought it looked cool, so I joined,” Pernat said.

Since then, she has continued her hard work, making her way to Minnesota trails as far away as Savage. “There aren’t a lot of trails here, so we gotta go far,” Pernat said.

“Everyone’s just really into it,” Pernat said. Despite it being a new sport, the team has and will continue to grow.
