Hello fellow cyclists, my name is Greg Lewis and I will be one of the DEVO coaches for the spring/summer sessions. I moved to Durango,nine years ago,from Kentucky, and originally grew up in Little Falls, New York. I moved here with the intentions to one day become a professional mountain biker. After 5 years of hard work and dedication I was able to live my dream and began racing in the pro field. In the last 4 years I have traveled all over the United States racing local, regional, national, and even World Cup events. I am very grateful for all of my experiences and wish to apply them to coaching all the amazing talent that exists in Durango. I originally began riding bikes when I was 5 years old and bought my first mountain bike when I was 11, with money I earned delivering newspapers and shoveling snow. Soon after purchasing my first mountain bike, a large group of friends and myself began shredding the local trails in Upstate New York. I look back at those days and think of all the fun we had and would love to promote and guide these same activities to the youth of Durango. The fun that I experienced, as a kid, is what allowed me to continue enjoying riding and racing as an adult and strongly encourage cycling as a hobby to all. I am really excited about getting a chance to work with the DEVO team.Read More

Local ageless cycling legend Walt Axthelm has donated a mint Durango factory made Schwinn Homegrown mountain bike to the DEVO squad. Walt has an amazing skill for bicycle mechanics, so the bike was donated in pristine condition. Walt was a top motorcycle enduro ripper back in the day. He was known for getting the holeshot and keeping it. Rock Onward Walt.Read More
Tad Elliott took second place of 37 professional skate skiers in Aspens Owl Creek race this past Sunday, which was part of the super tour, nordics pro nordic series. DEVO helper Miles Venzara took 26th place and is responsible for this rumor. “He muscled the field of top nordic honches like it was his job,” Venzara said of Tad’s performance. Another rumor links Tad to not actually making money off skiing. Passion could be the culprit.Read More
Hello Durango Devo,
I hope this note finds you well in the middle of a snowy Durango winter. I know it has been pretty hard to ride this winter in Durango and I just wanted to offer up some tips for staying fit and getting in shape during the winter. I use to live in NY and we wouldn’t see the sun for weeks during the winter and the temperatures would rarely get above freezing. I used this as an opportunity to cross train. Living in Durango with tons of snow you have access to all the winter sports. Nordic skiing will help build your aerobic base, downhill skiing and snowboarding will help with balance, core and explosive fast twitch muscles. You can also go to the Rec center or Sports Club and swim, play basketball, soccer or just ride the spin bikes. All of these exercises will help you with your cycling and you’ll be ahead of the game come spring time when the weather gets warm. If you feel like you can get out and ride a little bit this slippery weather offers a great chance to build your bike handling skills, just watch out for cars. Also, dress in layers so if you get too hot you can take some stuff off. It’s better to wear to much then too little in this winter. I look forward to riding with all of you this spring and summer.

Thats right, Durango DEVO has just successfully been accepted as a 501 c3 non profit organization. Our super all star during the process has been Yo Horn, who dialed and styled out numerous pages of hard to dissect packet action. Although we have not received an official notice on the acceptance, we have a former athlete who’s cousin works for a lady who swore to him that she overheard our name being accepted outside a meeting in Denver. That’s gotta’ be good as gold.Read More
