Bike Texas Kids Kup

  |   DEVO News & Information

Kids mountain bike racing series are popping up all over the country, many with roots in Durango. Rick Wheterald, former FLC cyclist, is promoting a race series in conjunction with the Texas Fall Cup mountain bike series. Nice work Rick! A link to their website is located on our side bar under Teams.

“We run it in conjunction with the regular adult races. I’ll set up a very easy, short course (like a short track) where the parents and spectators can see the kids the whole time. Typically I’ll run a safety clinic before the races, then lead a pre ride of the course, then races divided into two year age groups. I usually leave the course up for a few hours after the race, and it’s always cool to see some of the kids hang out for a while and ride the fun parts of the courses.”

“We’ve got Shimano and Clif as co-sponsors of the series, so the kids get some free schwag when they sign up, and it’s all free. At the Mellow Johnny’s Classic at Lance Armstrong’s ranch a few months ago, Trek and Mellow Johnny’s brought some extra goodies including a couple of pinatas! The kids were lined up and swinging at the pinatas near the adult course right as the Pro men were starting, which was really cool.” -Rick Wetherald, FLC Cycling Alumni and Kids Kup Organizer
