|USA Cycling announces changes to 2015 BMX Devo Program, rider qualifications|
(Jan. 21, 2015) – USA Cycling announced Wednesday various changes to the 2015 BMX Development (Devo) Program, including rider camp qualifications.
Devo - There will be no more “Junior Devo” races at USA BMX Nationals; instead, riders will now qualify through their regular 15 and 16-year-old expert and girls’ classes on Saturday and Sunday events only. Each of the four camps will have a qualifying window of USA BMX races. To see which races qualify for which camps go to http://www.usacycling.org/usa-cycling-bmx-development-series.htm.
USA Cycling will invite the top three boys from each of the 15 expert and 16 expert classes (six total) and top two girls from the 15-16 girls class. Points will be calculated by USA BMX using the standard national points system listed in the 2015 rule book, including groups for rider count. A rider’s best four scores in the series count toward camp qualification. Once USA Cycling has received the official points from USA BMX, invites to the camp will be sent out as soon as possible. Invites are sent via email, so it is important that each rider maintains a current email address/account with USA Cycling.
New for 2015 is the opportunity for age eligible riders (1999-2000) to submit video and race resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org to be selected for discretionary spots. All remaining Devo camp spots will be filled through talent identification by USA Cycling coaches.
Devo+ - Devo+ will continue to provide opportunities at camps for boys and girls that have either aged out of Devo or have shown exemplary performance markers at prior camps and are trending towards Evo caliber. Camp invites for Devo + will be at the sole discretion of USA Cycling coaches.
Evo - Also new for 2015 are designated spots at camps for Evolution (Evo) caliber riders. USA Cycling wants to provide as many opportunities as possible to help facilitate the transition from Devo+ athlete to Elite athlete, thus these spots are reserved for the top tier of our development talent.
The Evo spots at camps are designed to provide more time and coaching on SX tracks to keep developing riders engaged and working toward becoming a high performance Elite racer. This model also allows for Devo and Devo+ riders to train and race alongside Evo riders that have previously been through the same program and who can also serve as role models to the younger riders. Camp invites for Evo will be at the sole discretion of USA Cycling coaches.
2015 Camp Dates ..... April 26-May 3 ..... June 7-15 ..... August 16-23 ..... October 18-25

|sUPERCROSS BMX ANNOUNCES 2015 Factory TEAM PRO RIDERS|
Supercross BMX is happy to announce the addition of 2 Pros to our 2015 roster. They are none other than our own former amateur riders and Supercross family members, Kalvin Davis and Rachel Mydock.
After their outstanding performances at the 2014 USA BMX Grand Nationals, they both have decided to take on a new challenge in their own racing careers and we are more than happy to support them!
Team manager Kim Hayashi stated, “I couldn’t be more excited and proud to watch two of my former teammates make the jump to pro. I’ve had the privilege to watch them grow as athletes over the past few years and both Rachel and Kalvin are excellent riders as well as being amazing role models. I have no doubt that they will be making big waves in the pro class so keep your eye out on these two! Congratulations to our newest Elite Women, Rachel Mydock and our new A-pro, Kalvin Davis!”
Supercross BMX, Owner, Bill Ryan was overly excited to hear the news about Rachel and had this to say, “Rachel has been on a tear in the 17/20 girls class this year, and after picking up the NAG 1 spot for 2014, I am glad she decided to take the opportunity to fill the Women's Elite spot we had been saving for her. It is going to be a great to watch her start the new chapter of her career.”
After making the announcement Rachel was asked about her jump to pro, "2015 is going to be a new chapter for me but I couldn't be more excited! Racing against some of the fastest girls in the world is going to be challenging but I can't wait to line up with them at the Winter Nationals in February. I couldn't be happier with the support I have around me and I believe I have all the tools necessary to battle with the best in the world!"
When asked about Kalvin’s decision to pro owner Bill Ryan said, “Kalvin has had a plan, we spoke about it years ago that when he graduated college, he would turn pro. Well with him graduating last May, we knew that after Grands he was going to be ready to go A Pro and fill the A Pro spot that Jeremy left open after turning up to Elite. Kalvin has been a part of the Supercross Family for many years starting out on the 505 Racing / Supercross Team and then jumping into the Factory Supercross colors. We are super excited to see the Mighty Duck take the A Pro class by storm!!!"
Kalvin was so excited about his move to pro he had this to say, “I just love BMX, I love riding my bike. I am turning pro this year in search of that next level of fun on my bike. After racing for years as a top amateur and recently as UCI World Cup challenge rider, stepping up to the pro circuit is the next step. I can't wait to get up there and get nervous behind the gate in Vegas! See you there. And make sure to follow my adventures this year on Instagram.”
