Durango DEVO

SSWC09 is stoked to support our local junior development mountain bike team, Durango DEVO. This is the teams 4th season of operation and in that short time they have had two members make US world champ teams and 2 national champions. The program consists of 3 developmental levels, Jr. DEVO, U14 and U19. Jr DEVO is 2 8 week programs, one in the spring and one in the fall, for ages kindergarten through 6th grade. Groups are split up by age and wheel size, and meet once a week at a different trailhead around town. DEVO U-14 has a boys and girls team with a season running from April through August. It is aimed at introducing competitive mountain bike racing and honing in on the basic mtb skill set. They practice 2 times a week and travel to 3 Colorado races a season, where they camp or condo with team coaches and learn how to manage themselves throughout a race weekend. DEVO u19 is basically the same. However, they practice 3 times a week and travel to 5 races a season. In the end, the kids have fun and learn how to become all-around shredders. All program levels teach the practice of using the bicycle as a tool to live a happier and healthier life.

  1. I’d like to contact the race organizers.

    I am a freelance photographer with studios in Pennsylvania & Colorado.  I am considering photographing the SSWC09 this September.  Is a press pass required for photographers?  If so, how do I obtain one?  Are there any provisions made for press (discount lodging, etc.)?  Thanks for your response.

    If you would like to see some road photos I took last week during the Ride the Rockies tour, go to:   http://weidmanphoto.com/ridetherockies2/

    Cheers,
