Chance to find out the secrets of an Olympian!

  |   DEVO News & Information, Uncategorized

Todd Wells 3x Olympian
What makes you twitch? Fast vs. Slow Twitch Muscle
How much air is in your lungs? Lung volume and oxygen utilization
Why does my heart beat so fast? What the heart looks like at different rates
You tell me not to smoke, but why? Visual model of what smoking does to the lungs
Why does a fast food burger and soda slow you down? Basic nutrition
Why should I wear my helmet? Brain function
Why does my body occasionally hurt? Physical therapy assessment

The Durango Performance Center is offering a free event called “Physiology in the Park”. The presentation will analyze the body in motion, what happens as the intensity of exercise increases, and what limits our performance as determined by state of the art physiological analysis. It takes place in the Rotary Park and for kids and their parents from 5:30 until 8:00 PM on Thursday, August 16, 2012. Three time Olympian Todd Wells will be back from London to talk about the importance of understanding how the body works and answer questions from personal experience.

This is such great opportunity for all of Devo to learn more about our bodies on the bike.

Durango Devo Riders Asked to Ride in Pro Challenge

  |   Uncategorized

The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) hosting the USA Pro Cycling Challenge has invited DEVO to participate in the Opening Ceremonies on Monday, August 20th.  The ceremonies are meant to celebrate the Olympic, National and World Champions who call Durango home. DEVO athletes will participate to show the next generation of cyclists. We are hoping for 200 athletes 12 and under to participate with the U19, U14, Flyers and Explorer riders as the sweep riders. Olympic cyclists will lead out the parade and other local Olympians in a variety of sports will be participating in this event. This is not an open parade, due to road closures and a restrictions and to aid in the planning of such a huge event in Durango, this portion of the Pro Cycling Challenge event is an invitation only event.

The race itself will take place on Monday, August 20th. The entire weekend is full of events from a Grand Open House downtown on Main, the Start Village at Fort Lewis College on Saturday and Sunday, the mountain bike and trail run race at Twin Buttes (on August 18th) hosted by Trails 2000 and the Race Day party at Buckley on August 20th. All information can be found at durango2012.com.

Please help us out by volunteering for the Race Day festival by going to durango2012.com and click on Volunteer.

Thank you so much.
