TEAM CAMP: Day 1 Photo Gallery

-Vista, California-

The first day of the Wildlife Generation Pro Cycling p/b Maxxis pre-season winter team camp is in the books.

After hustling together the necessary sponsors, equipment, and staff to continue supporting the framework of one of America’s most storied programs over the period of only a couple months, team director, Danny Van Haute, brought together nine riders from California, Utah, Colorado, and Oregon, to compose the roster of the debut season of his Under-25 development program.

On the docket for our first day included team head shots, getting the team bikes dialed in, and team meetings with riders and staff.
