DEVO’s Chris Blevins 3rd in the Road Race After Spill
Durango DEVO U19er and 12 year old speedster, Chris Blevins pulled out a sweet podium spot at the Junior Road nationals in Bend, Oregon on Tuesday. Chris went down early in the race at mile 8 and was able to get back on the bike unscathed. He then closed a 30 second gap from the peleton to the lead group of six and caught on to the six with 1 kilometer to go. He sprinted and placed 3rd, finishing with the same time as the leader. The Crit is today. Chris is the first DEVO athletes to compete at the junior road nationals, and the first to podium. Well done!
