AHS and DHS finish top dogs after more rain, epic finishes

  |   DEVO News & Information, U19 DEVO Boys and Girls, Uncategorized

More rain, more mud, and more good, clean fun this weekend in Leadville at the Cloud City Challenge Race #2 as part of the Colorado High School League series.  Durango saw some champions today amidst some of the most epic conditions we have seen since the league started four years ago.  At 10,200 feet, racers started with packed waves of 100-200 riders.  The course started on a double track climb that went into some of the tightest single track in the high country.   “The trail was fun, rolly, sick and the sharp corners were fast and dicey due to the tight trees,” said AHS freshmen Austin Monroe.  Teammate George McQuinn explained it  as “like an underwater experience.”  “This course pushed a riders ability to corner with slick rocks, lots of twist and turns in the trees and tight cornering,” said head coach Garrett Alexander.  The day ended with another lightening thunder storm that caused race organizers to evacuate the Varsity/JV boys field off the course.  DHS/AHS team then started home but realized that with mud slides, flooding and snow on the passes that they should stay the night in Leadville.  They also had a teammate spend the night in the hospital due to a bad crash that ended in a broken bike and helmet.  “With the road conditions and having a teammate in the hospital, there was no question that we were going to stay the night and make sure everyone made it home safe,” said team director Sarah Tescher.  At the end of all the chaos, AHS emerged as the race champion and DHS taking home 2nd.  Race #3 in Elbert will take place Oct 6 and the state championships Oct 20th in Eagle.

Woodruff owns and operates Momentum Endurance, LLC, a cycling coaching business. He holds a USA Cycling (USAC) Level 1 coaching certification and currently serves as a representative on the USAC Mountain Bike Advisory Committee. He brings ten years of coaching experience to the program and has over fifteen years of racing experience, competing as a pro since 2006.

AZ Devo will focus on the Mountain Bike Association of Arizona (MBAA) race series along with select Pro XCT, Epic Rides or other national-level events. Former team members include Tyler Coplea (Orbea Tuff-Shed), Ryan Geiger (Team Winded) and Cypress Gorry (Whole Athlete).

Big Mountain Enduro Comes to Town This Weekend

  |   Uncategorized

Check out what the latest buzzword “Enduro” in mountain biking is all about this weekend at the BME Durango Enduro. Basically, Enduro is a race that takes place over the course of a few days. Each day has multiple timed stages, usually downhill, and a few non timed stages that the riders have to ride from the finish of one to the start of the next. There are many of these events popping up all over the world and this is Durango’s second year in the BME series. This year they have added a day 2 of racing that will take place in the Gulch, with Full Raiders Ridge and Crites/Carbon Junction, being the timed stages. Buckley Park is the headquarters for the weekends festivities, so swing down from 3-7 sat or sunday to catch the action.
