The aim is to have a group of riders who will support each other at races and improve their capability together. 

The Dev Squad gave me a supportive and sustainable way to get improve my riding and race technique. Chris provided an environment to really improve and noticeably, many squad members demonstrate this. If you want to start racing or move up a grade dev squad is the place for you!
