Kids on Bikes! Thanks to Deb Hall and Brian Peterson for having fun with the Durango rad pack, getting them off to a great start in a great sport. Rock onward!
Dear DWC Members,
With the Iron Horse soon to be in the history books and the college team
traveling the country/world on summer vacation, the A group has dwindled to a
handful of participants. After getting feedback and comments from a number
riders and regulars on the A and B+ rides we have decided to combine the A and
B+ rides for the summer, effective immediately!
THIS COMBINED RIDE WILL USE THE B+ SCHEDULE AND WILL MEET AT 5:30! Please
change you schedules appropriately. Leaders and participants of the combined
ride are asked to split the group if it exceeds 40 riders.
Wednesday night the DEVO mens and womans mtb teams will be open to the public from 430-530pm at the Fort Lewis Factory Trails, located at the south end of campus, behind the Bader Dorms. Come and join the young rippers as they play short track games. A great workout will be had by all. See you there.
Saturday May 24th 5-9pm at Buckley Park, DEVO will be selling beverages donated by Coca-Cola for the post race concert and we need help. Sunday May 25th 7am-9am kids race and Tom Danielson Junior Series, we need coarse marshals to help during races. Please contact email@example.com if you can help us during this busy weekend. Thanks and great job Annie!

Wednesday night from 530-8pm will be the kick off to the summer short track training races to be held every wednesday night for 9 weeks. Three Springs will be hosting our first event and will be providing Zia Taqaria and Robin Davis on the guitar. B men and women start off at 6pm, Jr DEVO at 630 and A men and women at 7pm. Circuit races will be 20min for B and Jrs, and 30 for A riders. This is a DEVO fundraiser as a suggested donation for the burritos and circuit race will be suggested. The course is located at the east corner of the Mercy Hospital parking area.
The remaining 8 wednesday night short-track will start at 6pm at various locations around Durango. A detailed schedule will be revealed soon. The races will suggest a donation of $5 and will go to kids on bikes. These are low key, no category, no fuss, training rides.
Hello DEVO. Bikes are everywhere this time of year. With the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic right around the corner, the local bike population seems to triple, maybe even quadruple. Check the IHBC website for all your event questions. There are two jr races on the sunday of IHBC weekend. A Tommy Danielson Junior Series race starts the morning at 7am and the usual jr races are at 8am.
Velo Swap is on for Friday 10 am to 10pm at the fairgrounds. If you are into selling stuff, you need to make it to the drop off on thursday night, 3-8pm at the fairgrounds. This is a big DEVO fundraiser, Thanks to the IHBC for letting us take part.
May 31st is the BigHugeGroupRide at Phils world, for all boys and girls, 20 and 24inch groups. Family members are invited to take part in this sweet weekend shred fest. Time will be announced later. We cant wait!
Telegraph Time Trial for all U-14,19 boys and girls is this friday. Wish them luck. The track is fast these days and the gulch road has been tailwindy, so times should drop.
May 29th is the rainy day make up ride for Jr DEVO 1st grade group, wednesday 24inchers and the AllGirlsRide. Location to be announced later.
The Chili Challenge will be the same weekend as the IHBC and a handful of DEVO rippers will be in attendance to ride the dirt. U-19er Taylor Borucki will be racing downhill in the jr Expert category on sunday, with the top place on the podium earning a supported trip to Italy in June as part of the USA World Championship Team, and has been training hard for this one race qualifier. Send T-Bone some positive vibes!
This past monday the U-19 ladies and U-14 boys met for practice and were greeted by local superstars, Shonny VanLandingham, Mary (sorry cant remember yet,) Tad Elliott and Todd Wells. Dang these kids are lucky. There were a ton of sweet silent, mouth agape, observations that day. Thank you for showing your support superstars!
Coach Dave Hagen wanted to let all ya’ll know that there are two sweet Trek Cyclocross frames for sale on their new site. Check it out.
FLC missed the elusive college sweep last weekend and finished a, still impressive, 2nd place overall. After being tied for first place heading into the last event, the criterium, FLC lost ground to the overpowering Lees MaCrae College. Colorado State, the host of the event rounded out the podium in third place. For full results, check out cyclingnews.com.
