|Specialized AllRide Academy|
The Specialized AllRide Academy is designed to attract kids to the healthy, passionate lifestyle that mountain biking offers. It is a gateway into the core of the industry and a stepping-stone for kids to pursue their dreams whether recreational, competitive or working in the bike industry.
Kirt Voreis supports select events by bringing his posse of kids to enjoy some racing action.
The Specialized AllRide Academy is not a factory race team nor a buy in team; it is a passion driven "Brogram" designed to give kids the experience of sportsmanship, camaraderie, successes, failures, perseverance and life skills.
It is a unique opportunity to be mentored and guided by one of the most respected professionals in mountain biking who is also an example of someone who persevered from a tumultuous childhood.
The Academy gives kids (ages 12-21) opportunities to experience mountain biking events and helps them discover the importance of having a passion and paying it forward to others.
