SRRC Athlete of the Week
“On fire”, on a roll”, “in the zone”, all great figures of speech intended to describe that unique state of mind that every SRRC athlete strives to tap into. As all of our team members are dedicated to achieving greatness, we wanted to highlight specific accomplishments of drive, confidence, calm, focus and athletic achievement.
Take a moment and help us celebrate our athlete and help us recognize their achievements while we encourage all to follow their journey. Let us congratulate Isabella Altman and Alec Young as our SRRC Athletes of the Week.

A Christmas Story
He is an Eagle Scout and his nickname is Fragile (as in Fra-geel-A from the movie The Christmas Story) because the first year he was supposed to compete he broke his arm on New Years Eve and his best friend gave him bubble wrap at his first Boardercross race the next season.
