Sepp Kuss Homecoming Celebration

Durango Devo is hosting 2023 Vuelta a España winner, Sepp Kuss, for a homecoming celebration and bike parade. Kuss, a Devo alumn, will join the Durango community on Oct. 19 at Buckley Park for a speech, meet and greet, and more.

If you can’t make it to the celebration in person, you can still take it all in via live feeds from the City of Durango on Youtube and Visit Durango on Instagram!

Being on a big team in the WorldTour, there are fans who look at you like a famous person, but I feel like I’m a cyclist just like you are. That comes from the environment I grew up in. In Durango you’re surrounded by the big stars, but I never thought about them that way. They’re just the guys from the local ride.
– Sepp Kuss

All members of the public are invited to attend this special appearance of Kuss, known worldwide as The Eagle of Durango. The event will kick off at 3:30 with speeches from Kuss and special guests and a Q&A with Kuss. At 4:30, there will be a bike parade down Main Avenue and returning to Buckley Park via East 2nd Avenue. The evening will end back at Buckley Park with autograph signings, live music, food, drink, and Sepp Kuss merchandise sales.

The Sepp Kuss homecoming celebration takes place during Spoketober, a month of bike-themed events during the entire month of October. Spoketober celebrates the cycling community that produced Kuss, as well as highlights the diverse and inclusive nature of cycling in Durango.

Special thanks for this event is owed to these community partners: Durango Devo staff and sponsors; the City of DurangoVisit Durango; the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic; and Fort Lewis College Cycling.
