DEVO Youth Programs: Welcome

Fostering a passion for riding in our youth...

The Developmental Escape Velocity Organization (DEVO) is Vancouver’s oldest and most successful youth cycling program. Founded in 1999, it has helped launch the careers of some of Canada’s top cyclists. We offer programming for road, track, mountain bike and cyclocross.

DEVO has grown into one of Canada’s premiere youth development cycling programs. It has fostered athlete development from novice riders up to national champions racing professionally. DEVO serves a fundamental role in rider education, providing a positive and fun team atmosphere for riders to develop not only bike skills and fitness, but also the mental skills and abilities to persevere through challenges, be part of a team, and realize both personal and team goals.

The road program teaches skill development, group riding, race tactics, fitness and safety.  We teach critical development skills to lifelong cyclists. Our road program has also produced some of the top racers in Canada! From time trials, to crits to classic road races-we teach these youth how to ride and race! See below for more details.



The MTB program is built to support cross-country and enduro riders.The focus of the program is to provide riders with skills and fitness sessions that are appropriate for their ability level. A variety of practice locations allow the program to include dirt jumping, pump tracks, rooty single track, bunny hopping practice, balancing on skinnies, relay races, timed hot lap races, technical line practice, slalom courses, and more. See below for more details.



Cyclocross is weird. It’s also the most fun cycling discipline for most athletes. This program includes a weekly practice with ability based groups. Athletes learn how to hop barriers, corner on grassy side hills, ride through sand, gain fitness, valuable and transferable bike handling skills, and more. The club provides athlete support at the weekend races that occur nearly every weekend from September to November. A cyclocross bike is strongly recommended. See below for more details

The DEVO Youth Track program operates out of the Burnaby Velodrome. There are only 26 velodromes in the world and this is an amazing opportunity for our youth to train and race at this world class facility. The younger youth sessions are focussed on safety, agility, fitness and fun. While the older youth programs offer exciting racing opportunities. See below for more details.
