Northstar-at-Tahoe mountain resort and Giant Bicycles are seeking mountain bike racers for their grassroots program that reaches out to competitive athletes.

In the summer Northstar operates a mountain bike park on its mountain in Truckee, California near the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.

The grassroots program provides a great box of tools to help expert-level athletes in California and neighboring states reach their full potential at local and regional mountain bike race events. Selected athletes will have the opportunity to purchase a Giant bicycle, Northstar-at-Tahoe Mountain Bike Park season pass, team jersey and other fine swag benefits at a preferred package price.

We are looking for humble athletes who will be great ambassadors, in the expert level categories with riding styles from downhill to endurance, for the Northstar-at-Tahoe and Giant Bicycle brands, who are approachable and knowledgeable, and who are passionate about converting all walks of life to the sport of mountain biking. We look to support athletes who are driven when it comes to achieving goals, helping the community, conquering obstacles, and relishing success.

To apply to the grassroots sponsorship program we would like to hear:

• Your definition of mountain biking and competing.

• What defines you as an athlete and a mountain biker?

Submit a cover letter along with a resume to help us learn more about your passion and goals for the sport. In the resume, please outline races you have competed in along with your accomplished results.
Email your resume and cover letter information to Justin Swett at
