Junior Devo Summer Camp Coach Ryder Okumura qualified for the US National Mountain Bike Team in Sequatchie, Tennessee this year. The event was a couple weeks back, but he finally got a good picture or two. He was edged out last year and selected as an alternate, but this year placed 2nd and earned a spot on the team. Ryder was beaten by Aran Cook, who won the IHBC trials and last years Trials from the Crypt. The UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships will be held in Champery, Switzerland in early September. Trials master Okumura be working with Durango Devo in August coaching mountain bike summer camps at DMR. Wish him luck!Read More
The El Grupo cycling group was in town last week for their second season of Dave Hagens Amazing Mountain Bike Adventure Camp. While in town the group got to ride and hang with the cycling locals that help make Durango the cycling mecca that it is. They are another great example of community cycling programs that put the teamwork aspect into all things biking. Great work leading such a great group of kids!Read More
