The 2010 mountain bike race season kicks off for team DEVO this April in Fruita. This will be DEVO’s 3rd season attending the Rabbit Valley Rally. Then in May the team heads over Wolf Creek to Nathrop’s Chalk Creek Stampede. This race has gotten plump since its recent inclusion to the 3 part US Cup series, The Triple Crown. Then in June its up to the classic DEVO team race, the WIldflower Rush. Crested Butte has been a staple in the colorado race scene for 40 years. After all that sweet colorado action, DEVO takes on the nations best at the National Championships at Sol Vista ski area. DEVO has 5 defending national champions looking to have some more fun. And finally the team will take its shortest drive over the hills to Telluride. After a couple years off, the race has been placed back on the schedule and that is a good thing. That is looking like a fun 2010 for DEVO.Read More

California’s Whole Athlete Cycling Team has become the first UCI registered Junior/u23 mountain bike team in years. This comes in the wake of the USA Cyclings decision to end its U23 National Team. Another junior team from Arizona, called Team Super Nova is also in the process of signing up as a UCI trade team. This costly license allows the team to send racers over seas to compete in the World Cup Series. Also exciting for this season is the Windham, New York World Cup Finals. As of last year, World Cup races have included junior races at the event, but to enter, the juniors must be on a roster of a UCI team, which has been historically rare. This is exciting stuff for US junior mountain bikers.
