Hello DEVO. Bikes are everywhere this time of year. With the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic right around the corner, the local bike population seems to triple, maybe even quadruple. Check the IHBC website for all your event questions. There are two jr races on the sunday of IHBC weekend. A Tommy Danielson Junior Series race starts the morning at 7am and the usual jr races are at 8am.
Velo Swap is on for Friday 10 am to 10pm at the fairgrounds. If you are into selling stuff, you need to make it to the drop off on thursday night, 3-8pm at the fairgrounds. This is a big DEVO fundraiser, Thanks to the IHBC for letting us take part.
May 31st is the BigHugeGroupRide at Phils world, for all boys and girls, 20 and 24inch groups. Family members are invited to take part in this sweet weekend shred fest. Time will be announced later. We cant wait!
Telegraph Time Trial for all U-14,19 boys and girls is this friday. Wish them luck. The track is fast these days and the gulch road has been tailwindy, so times should drop.
May 29th is the rainy day make up ride for Jr DEVO 1st grade group, wednesday 24inchers and the AllGirlsRide. Location to be announced later.
The Chili Challenge will be the same weekend as the IHBC and a handful of DEVO rippers will be in attendance to ride the dirt. U-19er Taylor Borucki will be racing downhill in the jr Expert category on sunday, with the top place on the podium earning a supported trip to Italy in June as part of the USA World Championship Team, and has been training hard for this one race qualifier. Send T-Bone some positive vibes!
This past monday the U-19 ladies and U-14 boys met for practice and were greeted by local superstars, Shonny VanLandingham, Mary (sorry cant remember yet,) Tad Elliott and Todd Wells. Dang these kids are lucky. There were a ton of sweet silent, mouth agape, observations that day. Thank you for showing your support superstars!
