“Kaila is a product of the Durango development programs, first Durango Devo which is a great way for kids to get on bikes, then Get Out! Durango, where she was and is still coached by former MTB pro Kricket Lewis. We saw a need to help kids bridge the gap from being recreational to training seriously, that’s why Get Out! was started. Kaila receives a training plan through her Get Out! coach, has weekly group workouts available including rides, sports conditioning and skills classes with former BMX world champ Jimmy Kight (Get Out! coach).”
Shannon Gibson, Team Manager/Racer
Riding under the watchful eye of her coach and with the exceptional guidance of the consummate professionals which comprise the Team, Kaila is going to have a great season. Having just earned her pro license, 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo marked her first race as a pro. Cyclingdirt caught up with her during the race, interview below.
