Echelon-Storck Development - Panaracer Partners with The Brightest Devo Team in California

Panaracer Tires - Echelon Storck Devo Team

Echelon-Storck is the brightest new team to come out of Northern California, giving young road riders the support they need to make the next step into the world of professional road racing. What separates this team from the many local programs around the country? It's the attention to detail, meticulous care in their equipment, and the passion running through each and every ride. 

Panaracer was on hand to see the new Storck bikes being built up in anticipation of the 2016 season. With an invite to the Redlands Classic in the bag, the team is looking forward to mixing it up at the front with the fastest riders in the USA. Managing director AJ Kennedy realized the need for a transition program for young riders leaving the junior ranks and moving up to the elite level. The focus during the 2013 season was to create the initial squad and build a core group of riders that became the foundation for adding young talent. In 2014 and 2015, a number of new riders were added to the roster. The 2016 season sees the team take on the new name of Echelon-Storck Development and continue to build the program into one of the leading development teams in the country.

Panaracer will be supplying the team with all racing and training tires for the 2016. To learn more about the range of road tires Panaracer has on offer, take a look at our product pages. 

As the managing director of the team, I have been thrilled to watch our riders become friends as well as teammates. I believe it’s important for young riders to develop strong relationships and respect for each other. If they respect the talent and character of their teammate they’re more likely to sacrifice their own personal chances for the benefit of a teammate. - AJ Kennedy, Managing Director
