TakeAim Devo Teams 2023

Welcome back to another year of TakeAim Devo! 


Our goal is to provide a program for Junior Mountain Bike Athletes to excel in all gravity disciplines through our enduro training program. We believe in a long term approach to success and strive to build resilient athletes who achieve both fun and performance at the same time. 


The TakeAim Devo Program Goals

  •  Build well-rounded, lifetime athletes through education and diverse experiences. 

  •  Give riders skills to have fun and be safe in and out of competition. 

  •  Prepare riders for competition regionally and nationally. 


2023 Team Structure

For 2023 we will offer two teams to meet riders goals. The Devo Race Team (DRT) will be for kids with more advanced riding skills, racing experience and focused goals. The Devo Shred Team (DST) will be for kids who are interested in enduro and downhill but are younger or have very little experience racing. 


The Devo Race Team Program (DRT):

  • For 13-17 year old kids who are performance focused.

  • Practices will be three hours and the effort levels will be high.

  • The focus will be on fun and friendships, but everyone should also be eager to learn more about racing and practicing the components of race-craft.

  • To qualify for the DRT, riders must be able to ride 3-4hrs, hill climb for up to an hour, and be comfortable on steep, black diamond trails. 

  • Race support will be provided at 6 regional races.

  • Discounts for the DownDuro Race series at Bryce Bike Park. 


The Devo Shred Team Program (DST):

  • For 11-15 year old kids who want to improve their riding skills.

  • The goal is to develop as a mountain bike rider with a focus on gaining confidence on a variety of trail types.

  • Members of the DST will get discounts to the DownDuro races at Bryce Bike Park.

  • The DST doesn't include race support at DRT team events, but DST riders are always welcome to hang out at the team tent.

  • To qualify for the DST, riders must be able to ride for 2hrs, complete hill climbs up to 30 minutes long, and ride single black diamond trails. 


2023 Season Changes: 

  • Weekly Summer Practices for both teams! From June to August we’ll meet more often and shred more!

  • For 2023 we are excited to welcome Ronnie Vance to the team to replace coaches Adam and Lindsey who will join us occasionally as guest coaches.
