DEVO appreciated local Telegraph TT help this summer

  |   Uncategorized

Durango DEVO took up monthly hill climb testing this summer on the local suffer-route, Telegraph Trail. Official start line being at the parking lot, riders power up the chunky Horse Gulch Rd before entering the deceiving meadow. The climb gets steep once you turn right up the Telegraph Trail. The infamous “chute of doom,” tops off the climb with riders making a hard right to finish the suffer-fest. I would like to take the time to thank these local riders who took time to come shred with the future-shredders this summer. (name and best time) Robin Guillaume 18:15, Anne Cheeney 27:44, Mike Wilk 17:47, Cale Redpath 17:28, Travis Brown 16:21, Frank Mapel 18:46, Nick Gould 16:56, Andrew Wait 19:36, Ned Overend 16:12, Zack Schriver 15:57, Greg Lewis 16:02, Noah Singer 16:49, Rick Whetherald 17:28.

The Snow Rains on our Parade

  |   Uncategorized

Russell the Musclecross is officially cancelled again, this time until next December. We would have seen a twenty to thirty strong field of racers all aboard klunckers, townies, tandems, and randoms, shredding and pushing during the Cruiser race. After a short intermission of hot chocolate and Shishims’ chili, the B men and women would have lined up. The race could have been good. In the B mens category, their would have been a battle for second place, being that Burtoni probably would have won again. After that, the kids race would have gone off. Nothing beats watching a bunch of dedicated jr. Devo cyclists ride around in circles. That would have been cool. Then they all would have gotten medals witch they so deserve. Then Alex would have sung the star spangled banner, and half of us wouldnt be able to tell if it was a serious moment or another DC funny. His voice could have been so perfect that day. Then fireworks would have flown and the A men and women would have taken off on their quest for whatever it is they quest for. Then we would have all hung out for a little longer than we usually do and our cheeks would have hurt. Thats probably what would have happened. Next year my friends.
