U-14er Stephan Davoust was riding away from practice one day when he observed the Cheeney’s miniature van rolling down the street, looking and sounding horrible. Stephan informed his father, Bob, owner of Durango’s Village Auto Care, of what he had just witnessed. Bob then offered to do a safety check on the vehicle since the vehicle takes Coaches Chad and Annie all over this mountainous state to the teams monthly races. What he found was a mistreated, unmaintained mess. Coach Chad then accepted Bobs help and drove to his shop to drop off the vehicle. Upon entering the shop, Chad was amazed at how clean it was, he had never seen or expected an auto shop to be so clean. A day passed and Bob called to say the sweet charriot was back in business. Driving the vehicle away from the shop, Annie and Chad were again amazed. This was the best the vehicle had ever driven, the steering, the engine, the headlights, the tire pressure were all spot on. Chad and Annie were very impressed and they high fived tons of times.Read More

Day one went well for the Durango DEVO squad. After longer than expected travel due to road work, the teams were eager to hit the course for some sweet pre-ride action. Coach Chad led the first wave on the course and was excited to see a change from last years fire road descent. This year, the descent joins up with the downhill course and sends the xcers down a steep, dusty, bermed out track that really tests the skills of the young rippers. Coaches Kricket and Annie led out the second wave which saw Howard crash in the very downhill described above, and bend his derailuer hanger. Joan rode her brand new Orbea, the teams latest bike sponsor, and giggled a bunch. After all that tasty mountain air, the teams reunited in the team condo, where chef Chad cooked up spaghetti, salad, and buttered bread. Thirteen strong, the footsteps and chatter from the condo was loud with excitement after dinner. Last minute lubing, derailuer hanger bending, and testing oneanothers bikes filled the last hour of sunlight. Lights out at 10. If only it were that easy. Tomorrow brings the first event, the cross country begins at 8am.Read More
