We Almost Made Cycling Cards in 2008

  |   Superstar Interviews

In 2008 we had an idea to make cycling trading cards of the local cycle lovers and eventually the Devo youth. Bicycle Bob of Durango Cyclery was our prototype subject. The card was designed to replicate the 1986 Topps Baseball Card that was one of the most unpopular card designs of the 80’s due to its black top and white sides that were very susceptible to showing wear, thus reducing the cards value. Someday in the future, this project will see the light.Roost2008_Contract

U14 Coach Evan Elliott Still Recovering from Wrist Injury

  |   DEVO News & Information, Photos

U14 Devo Coach, Evan Elliott will be forced to sit out his 2011 coaching duties. After breaking his wrist in the Pro Mens National Championship race in Sol Vista last July, Evan had surgery to place pins and plates to support the recovery. He must now get surgery to take the metal out, meaning another period of healing off the bike. This is sad news as Evan has been with the program since the beginning in 2006. Please wish Evan a speedy recovery! We wish him well and look foreword to his future role with the program.
