The Animas High School Ospreys will be jumping into the newly created

School’s  Michael Ackerman and Jesse Hutt and Durango Devo’s Sarah Tescher
and Chad Cheeney.  Michael Ackerman, AHS’s Head of School, commented, “This
partnership with Durango Devo’s coaches creates unique opportunities for
students.  More young adults will be able to get out and enjoy biking on our
beautiful trails while learning skills from pro cyclists.  And we know that
students will enjoy competing in races around the state.”  The team will be

open to all levels of riders with the goal being competing as a team at the

the class begins next week, so look out for the green and gold Ospreys!

1990 World’s 20th Anniversary XC Race Results

Triple Crown Series Overall Points 2010

Thanks to all those who took time to come shred at DMR this summer at the Durango Coca-Cola Triple Crown town race series. We averaged 33 racers for the three events and can only see it growing into the future. DMR is pumped to have us up there and the racers have been pumped on the positive growth with the terrain and the race tracks offered.

In Saturdays final race of the Durango Coca-Cola Triple Crown series, the 20th Anniversary of the 1990 World Championships, DEVO’s Howard Grotts and Director Sarah Tescher raced the new 90 Worlds lap to victory, Howard sealing the deal on the overall points champ and teammate AliciaRose winning the women’s overall. Other winners on the day were Julie Feilen, Devin Feilen, Levi Kurlander and Ed Zink. Zink was the promoter for the 90 Worlds and took the day at DMR to reminisce and race his bike on the rerouted course. He wore a vintage jersey, hat and warm-up flease from the 1990 event and looked super sweet. After the event, he stayed around and fielded questions and dusted off an old program from the race and gifted it to the promoter for the current event, coach Chad. Coach Chad was pumped! All in all, the series was a positive for the Durango community and will be back for 2011. The series profits will be split evenly and donated to Trails 2000, FLC Cycling, the Durango Wheel Club, Bicycle Lemonade, Durango BMX and Durango DEVO.

Kids at Camp

  |   Uncategorized

From one of the Jr DEVO Summer Camp coaches,

“John Rocka fell and knock the wind out of himself at camp today.
After he regained the ability to speak,
he asked me if he still had two lungs?
I looked at him curiously, asked him to raise his right hand,
then looked him in the eyes,
“Yes John Rocka you still have both lungs.””

Last week 15 kids joined coaches Sarah Tescher, Stephan Davoust, Joe Schneider and AliciaRose Pastore for and action packed 8 hour day on the mountain. Riding bikes is the name of the game.

The kids and coaches grab the bus at Durango’s transit center early every morning and make the trip to the mountain. Once chamoied up, they take part in group rides on the 90 worlds course, do skills clinics on the sweet DMR terrain, watch bike videos after lunch, do trailwork on the Pando Short Track and ride the pump track in search for the perfect line. The camp is for ages 7-13 and is open to all those in search of a great time.
