Gentry Academy's Hall continues climb as elite mountain biker

Recently ranked as the No. 1 mountain biker in the nation for his age group, Gentry Academy's Barrett Hall has plenty of time to practice during this pandemic.


Up and down describes this year perfectly. 

It's also very relatable when talking about Barrett Hall's journey in mountain biking. 

A sophomore at Gentry Academy in St. Paul, Hall was recently ranked as the No. 1 mountain biker in the nation in his age group of 15-16 year olds. He hopes to possibly turn pro one day in this high-adrenaline sport.

That's not bad for a kid that also scored 24 goals playing hockey this year for the Stars. 

Right now, with school out, it's a perfect sport for social distancing and some fast paced practice.
