ABOUT: SOCAL DEVO TEAM
" Developing Southern California's finest young mountain biking talent "
SoCal DEVO is a JUnior and U23 developmental program with the mission to invest in our youth and the sport of cycling. The primary goal for the SoCal Devo team is to find and develop the next batch of top American Mountain biking talent. Our main focus will be on the West Coast with a special emphasis on Southern California. We will be participating in racing, clinics, community service, and the most important thing of all - FUN!
While the good ole USA is the birth place of mountain biking, it has been a long time since we were a dominate force on the World Cup cross country scene. Due to the inception and implementation of NICA ( National Interscholastic Cycling Association ) the US is primed for the biggest growth in top young MTB athletes than ever before. With this growth, we feel it is necessary to give young racers the proper training, guidance, and race experience beyond the league. The SoCal Devo ( Southern California Developmental ) team is a Mountain bike team consisting of Jr and U23 racers. Jr Racers are young 14-18 year old's while the U23 racers are 19-22. Our goal is to help bridge the gap from young high school racers to the college and Pro ranks. Of course along the way we know we'll be privileged enough to work with some possible Olympians and world Champions!
