The Devo Team is for athletes interested in learning more about conditioning and advanced bike skill development. Athletes will participate in group cycling activities and learn about competitive cycling. Additionally, athletes will learn the importance of stewardship and fundamental trail maintenance while working on designated trail work days. The Development Cycling Team will race in the Town Challenge MTB Series and will pre-ride the race course with a coach on Tuesdays prior to competition. They will also have the opportunity to race in the SSWSC Training Road Race Series. Riders will need both a mountain bike and a road bike. Athletes will start the season with a lactate threshold test and we will design a training plan around their goals. Riders are encouraged to add a strength session, the coaches can assist with this.

Minimum equipment requirements: 26”-29” mountain bike, heart rate monitor, clipless pedals, cycling helmet, cycling gloves, sunglasses, water and spare tube (the same size as your athlete’s tire!!)
