Mitch Hoke, a 2006 graduate of Colorado Rocky Mountain School from Evergreen, has been nominated by USA Cycling to represent the United States at the UCI World Mountain Bike Championship Races in Mont-Sainte-Anne, Quebec.

He will join the five other top U23 cross country riders at the race, which happens today.

Hoke, who made the podium twice at the recent U.S. National Mountain Bike Championships in Sol Vista, Colo., was a member of the CRMS state championship team during high school. He began his racing career at the school and continued to compete while a student at Colorado College, where he will graduate in December of this year with a degree in environmental science.

During high school, Hoke did his three-week senior project, just a few months after the Katrina disaster, working with an organization that provides bikes for people without cars in New Orleans.

Volunteers are needed for the 26th annual Tri-Glenwood Triathlon.
