Oakland Composite mountain bike coach 'stoked' with mission
"While Berkeley High School has a team, Oakland has no school teams. Neither does Alameda, San Leandro, Castro Valley, Hayward nor Fremont," said Oakland Composite head coach Morgan Fletcher. "We have, and have had, kids from every one of those communities."
