Ride: Race: Learn

 

We are a training program for gravity racers! 

 

You can be on TakeAim Devo and be on another team because our main focus is helping you get faster! 

 

TakeAim Cycling Devo Program will provide training for juniors looking for expert guidance on gravity racing while having fun at the same time. We focus on regional enduro events but our program will help riders prepare for racing any discipline on the biggest stages throughout the country. 

 

Our “WHY” is because we want to develop mentally and physically strong riders while building tools for success in all their life pursuits. Our coaches have raced at all levels of the sport and want to bring the lessons gained from their experiences to the riders of the future. We love to see growth in riders, whether that is through race results or emotional resiliency. 

 

The Program 

 

We have 15 spots available with 5 reserved for junior girls. 

 

The program will consist of nine practices, race support at six regional events, and team video calls throughout the season. Practices will focus on skills development as well as cover different topics such as equipment setup and physical preparation. The video calls will be opportunities to cover training questions, race prep, and strategy. On race weekends we will be there to provide guidance from the pre-rides to the post-race recovery. 

 

Practices will mostly be at the Massanutten Western Slopes or Bryce Bike park. We will have two special practices that are all day at Massanutten Bike Park and Snowshoe Bike Park
