Junior Devo Team, Performance Camps, and Instruction 2020
The goal of TakeAim Devo Program is to give junior riders access to high-end skills coaching and race preparation in a safe, fun, and low pressure environment. We keep our group size small to provide the best learning and teaching environment we can. This year we have expanded our options for juniors to decide what format works for their skills training. There will be the Junior Devo Race Team that riders can apply for, then we have two 10 week Skills Development programs and finally riders can take their Race Craft Camps to another level through the three camps on offer.
TakeAim Devo Race Team $800

The 2020 Junior Enduro Devo Race Team will be all about honing race craft and developing as riders who are looking for performance. Our focus will be on the craft of racing and we have partnered with SmartMTB Training to provide a custom 12 week enduro training program.

One Race Craft Performance Camp or a 10 week skills development program. (See program below)

Discussions on training progress and goals will occur weekly.
Team riders will have small amounts of reading material to discuss, be responsible for making one instagram posts for the TakeAim account, and to tag sponsors they benefit from at least once on their own accounts. Previous team members get first option for joining and application for new membership can be found here. Riders will be chosen based on their dedication and interest in the overall goal, which is to have fun, get faster and study the craft of racing.
We believe that race support is critical to helping riders progress so we will be at four West Virginia Enduro races, two Virginia races, and the EWS race in Burke VT. TakeAim Cycling will be available for pre-riding and mechanical support throughout the event to help racers be prepared throughout. Racers will be responsible for their entry, lodging, food, and transportation to events.

Race Craft Performance Camps $650-700
The Performance Race Craft Camps are two or three days and include lift tickets, food, and lodging which may mean camping at the Spring Break camp location. These camps are limited to ten 14-18yr old riders and designed to allow us to dive deep into race specific aspects of riding, racing, and technique. Each of the three camps will have different themes to work on to allow us to explore in greater topics such as Suspension Set-Up, Race Prep, Strength Training, Nutrition, Course Review Techniques, and the skills of riding such as jumping, drops, confidence, speed, and precision. The multi day camps include lots of riding, timing of runs, trying new things, and self exploration to step-up their riding level!
Riders must discuss their readiness for camp with TakeAim Cycling before signing up. Give us a call or drop a line!

TakeAim Skills Development Practices
The Skills Practices are a 10 week program for 13-18 year olds who want to ride together regularly and work exclusively on their skills for whichever kind of riding and racing they choose. The program will be designed to help riders progress their skills to be more capable, confident, efficient, and stylish on their bikes. Practices will be on local trails. These practices will take everyone from XC to DH riders to new levels of understanding and fun on their bikes. Everyone who signs up for this practice session will receive TakeAim t-shirt, water bottle, and race support at seven enduro races a year.
