Welcome to Devo’s 2018 cyclocross programs!
Many consider cyclocross to be a steeplechase with modified road bikes on a 2km course over hill and dale; others consider it to just be a muddy mess. Its roots can be traced to the early 1900s when French army private Daniel Gousseau would ride his bicycle alongside horseback-riding friends through the woods. But, it’s also an immensely popular winter cycling discipline, guaranteed to get you fitter (and muddier) with an exceptional atmosphere to boot!

This year, Devo is excited to offer TWO different cyclocross programs!
INTRO TO DEVOCROSS
Mondays, 4:00-5:30pm @ the Durango Rec. Center
5-week program, Nov. 5 – Dec. 3
For middle schoolers, and/or those who are just being introduced to cyclocross and are looking to work on skills and just have fun!
Head Coach: Chad Cheeney
Description: This is a fun-filled introduction to the sport of cyclocross! This program is for any rider, middle school age and up, who is interested in learning what cross is all about. Racing need not be an interest, as the primary goal of this group will be to develop skills and learn how to have fun on our winter trails. MTB or CX bike are both totally fine. Make sure to bring warm clothes and gloves for riding in chilly and/or wet weather, as well as front and rear bike lights for when the light gets low towards the end of practice. A Devo Cross jersey is not provided with this registration, but jerseys are available for sale from the Devo website. For questions or more information, please contact Chad Cheeney at email@example.com.
DEVOCROSS RACE TEAM
Practice location varies; FLC, Rec. Center, etc.
7-week program, Oct. 30 – Dec. 6th
For riders who are interested in training for, and racing cyclocross with their friends!
Head Coach: Sam Vickery
Description: This is a program for riders who are interested in training for, and racing cyclocross! Practices will be focused on building a love for the sport, while also developing sound skills, fitness, and tactics for racing. RACING IS NOT REQUIRED, but riders will have full coach and team support at 3 primary races:
1. 4CCX, Cortez CO, Nov 17th
2. CO State Champs, Parker, CO, Dec 1st-2nd
3. US Nationals, Louisville, KY, Dec 13th-17th (provided there is enough interest in traveling as a team)
A proper cyclocross bike is highly encouraged for this group, though not required; a mountain bike will be fine for practices and most races. Note: A UCI legal CX bike will be required to race at State and National Champs! Make sure to bring warm clothes and gloves for riding in chilly and/or wet weather, as well as front and rear bike lights for when the light gets low towards the end of practice. A SWEET THERMAL DEVO CROSS JERSEY IS PROVIDED WITH YOUR REGISTRATION! Please register ASAP for an on-time delivery of your jersey. For questions or more information, please contact Chad Cheeney at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sam Vickery at email@example.com.
