Welcome to
The 2022 SoCal League WRMB (wor-em-be) Challenge!!!

What’s a WRMB Challenge? Well, as most of you already know, the league’s roots are in racing. That said, the SoCal League has always pushed the idea of being a “Well-Rounded Mountain Biker.”  The WRMB (pronounced wor-em-be) Challenge is the manifestation of our culture turned into a game that can be played throughout the season.

Here is how it works…

The Challenge consists of five categories, each with five achievements that you can complete. The first four categories are: Climbing, Distance, Vista, and All-Around. The fifth category, the Magic category, is a mystery. It’s rumored that Easter Egg Achievements unlock as specific things are spotted in the stories, photos, and videos shared with us by squads and individuals. By extension, the more that is shared with us the more likely it is that an achievement may unlock…hint hint.

The challenge begins on January 1, 2022 and ends on May 1, 2022. Only achievements completed in this time frame will count.

Coaches on participating teams will be keeping a record of progress and completion of achievement for each rider and coach (yes, coaches will be out on the training rides and are also eligible to participate). Independent riders must have a parent/guardian track and submit for them. For each achievement there is a custom icon (see below). At the conclusion of the challenge on May 1st, a simple form will be provided via this page for coaches to submit all achievements accomplished by themselves and or their riders. All submissions must be made by April 25th. Each participating coach and rider will receive a custom WRMB Challenge number plate with their name and team by mid-May. Stickers for each achievement completed for each rider and coach will also be provided.

All NICA-sanctioned activities, such as NICA Team Practices, Races, Teen Trail Corps Activities, GRiT Activities and Camps incorporate NICA values and follow NICA policies, rules, standards and guidelines. Any riding outside of NICA is not a NICA sanctioned activity and therefore is not covered by NICA insurance. WRMB Challenge Achievements completed outside of team practice will count toward the WRMB Challenge but these are not NICA-sanctioned activities. Any riding outside of NICA is under the guidance and supervision of parents and guardians.

Information about the specific requirements for each achievement can be found by clicking the icons below.

With so much being “virtual” these days, we are asking that squads submit photos, videos, stories, songs, poems, and skits about the challenges! We will be sharing these on social media, in newsletters, and on this page so that the extended SoCal League FAMILY can feel united. We can’t wait to see the smiles on face as coaches and kids accomplish these feats!

Coaches! HERE is a downloadable tracking form you can use to easily capture which achievements the riders and coaches in your squad have completed through the challenge. This will make it EASY to submit at the conclusion of the challenge. We STILL NEED your submissions below during the season though 🙂

WRMB Challenge

Race Day is less than a month away. The Beach to Boulders p/b @skyparkbikepark is going to be great!
⁠
We've put the laps on the 2022 Race Page so teams and student-athletes can go pre-ride. They have been saved on Strava as routes so that they can be loaded to head units and/or phones if desired. Link to routes is in our bio.⁠
⁠
The course is in great shape and we can't wait to see y'all on race weekend!⁠
