The DEVO program is developing the future mountain bike champions in Canada. We center the entire program around continuous improvement and an environment that fuels fun and long-term personal and professional success in sport and life.
Through structured and scheduled training and consistent education that provides athletes the knowledge to apply training methodology, we've created an environment that drives excellence. We foster athlete development and success through unwavering dedication, consistency, and environment. We take a two-tiered approach by providing coaching, racing, and training camp support to ensure athletes can develop without being limited by resources.
The program offers extensive coaching support to help athletes fill the gaps within their training and reach their individual goals. Our coaches are former or current professional athletes and high achieving entrepreneurs and business owners, all of which want to share their experiences in sport and business to help the next generation of athletes achieve their potential.

Canyon Devo racing is for up and coming youth cyclists in Canada ages 15-30. These athletes are aspiring to race and compete at the highest level in mountain biking and cyclocross and may not have the in-person event and coaching support they need to achieve a high level. Typically, these athletes would be racing in Cadet Expert, Junior Expert, u23, or Elite.
