The mission of the Duluth Composite Mountain Bike Team (DCT) is to help youth build strong bodies and minds through mountain biking. We provide programming to help youth become stronger riders, be it for performance at races or for fun on Duluth’s great trails.


Founded in 2013, DCT participates in the Minnesota High School Cycling League with youth in grades 7-12 in the Duluth area.


In 2017 we created Duluth DEVO, a development program for youth entering grades 4-6, to provide a fun atmosphere for kids to learn bike skills with their peers. DEVO also provides appropriate off-season development opportunities for older youth.     

The Duluth Composite Mountain Bike Team is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We have a governing board of seven members and a head coach.
