DEVO’s team race number 5 for their summer program was this weekend in Dolores, Colorado at the four corners classic, Escalante Days Mountain Bike Race. Organized by the Dolores Rotary, this small town race has been happening for 10 years now. The Boggy Draw trail network is is the home to this shredfest, as racers start from town, do a couple mile road climb, before holeshoting the singletrack. This years $100.00 prime for first to the cattlegaurd went to Durango’s Tad Elliott. That’s a sweet race in itself.
DEVO arrived in the Boggy Draw National Forest friday for pre-rides, pot-luck, and the materialistic, SchwagFest 2008, a free box of random cycling artifacts from Durango’s generous cycling professionals. It rained, but the show went on. The parents; Johanna, Buck, Bob, Tracey, Lori, Jeanne, Mark, Fran, Claudia, Steven, Dolf, Sabina, Richard and Holly all brought food, Bread Bakery supplied us with cookies, bread and tasty sandwiches and Kricket, Annie and Chad did the coaching.
Race day was typical. Dudes and dudettes riding around in circles, nervous and patiently waiting to do what they do best, Race! John Tomac was there, just being rad in a non rad sort of way. DEVO did very well and many personal goals were accomplished. Here are the DEVO results;
