New for 2021 will be the Tribe Development Team. The Tribe Devo Team is for those athletes wanting to join the Tribe in the future. Below is more information on that team and what the requirements are. 

The Tribe Devo team will be limited to 6 athletes for 2021. It will be $1850 for the season starting early May and ending late October. These athletes will train 2-3 days per week and attend local and some national competitions. This team will be coached by Tyson and another full time coach to manage and run most of the weekly training sessions. 

Tribe Devo athletes will have opportunities to work with and ride with Tribe athletes to learn from them and progress in a team environment. 

The requirements below will not be easy to accomplish. The intent of the requirements is to forge strong minds and strong bodies that can keep up with the rigorous pace of the team and of pursuing lofty goals in this sport. A lot of the requirements will be completed on the honor system and on the parents working closely with your athlete to help them complete the daily tasks. 

I will send out further info on the physical requirements, fitness in-person test date, and more. Check the Team App news section for these updates.


The intent of the team changes are to:

  1. Build a world-class team

  2. Build greater team unity

  3. Award athletes based on merit

  4. Increase attendance at training

  5. Place more responsibility on the athlete as it's their choice to join the team. They want to be here, and have earned the right to be here and continue to do so daily with their character, discipline, and passion. 

  6. Create a clear pathway for athletes to progress and gain further support for their dreams


It's not going to be easy. But that's the point. 


There will still be a lot of responsibility on the parents to help your athlete complete the requirements and report to me. There are also a set of requirements for the parents. For example, completing the parent version of the Fearless Mind Sessions (which will be scheduled this January, there are 3-4 sessions for you). 


Everything here is subject to change. I will be updating them as we go along and I get feedback. 


I would strongly encourage athletes to get started on the physical requirements now. I sent everyone workouts to do for 7 weeks designed to help you accomplish these requirements.
