Here in Durango, cyclocross has been in existence every fall/winter season since the early 90’s. Spearheaded by Fort Lewis College Cycling Team, the Wednesday Noon practice up at FLC and the annual 4 Corners Cross Race series have been a staple to the Durango cycling community.
For years we have wondered how to get some youth involved and stoked on this healthy cycling discipline. It’s fun to practice skills in a team setting, the racing is short and action packed. Family friendly and is all right out the front door.
Devo has had numerous cross program offerings, but never really had options for the elementary and middle schoolers. This clinic is our first step towards getting the youngins stoked on the sport.
Our current Devo Cross program consists of 7 high schoolers and is Coached by Ian Burnett and myself. We practice Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s up at the college with the Skyhawk Cross team. We do skills, drills, mock races and of course tons of games that keep it fun.
Anyway, if you are interested, come check us out Friday, November 11, at 3:30pm at the Fort Lewis College softball fields off of Rim Drive.. You can register at the venue. Just showing up gets you a rad skillz session!
Saturday, November 12th is the 2nd Race in the 4 Corners Cross Series and it is up at FLC. Here is the link
Races are free for juniors and Jr Devo crossers from the clinic. Kids race is scheduled to go off at 10:30am and older riders at 11:00. Coach Chad and Ian will be there at 9:30-11:00 to do warm up laps and get pumped together.
Please contact us if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org & Ianburnett@gmail.com
