The Development Team is for all athletes ages 11-15 (or younger with coaches' approval)
interested in racing mountain bikes, participating in group cycling activities and generally
learning about competitive cycling.  Through the exploration of different dimensions of
cycling as a sport, the team will develop mechanical, competitive, and bike handling skills.  
Additionally, athletes will learn the importance of stewardship and fundamental trail
maintenance while working on designated trail work days.
The Development Team focuses more upon Competitive Mountain Biking, but athletes will
be encouraged to race in the
SSWSC Road Race Training Series and select regional
mountain bike competitions, including the Winter Park series, and the Mountain States Cup
regional series.  The Development Team will race in the
Town Challenge Series and
pre-ride the race course with a coach on Mondays prior to competition.
