Olympic Athlete Development

The elite athlete development process in cycling can span much of the formative life of an athlete and requires significant resources. Most of the countries against which we compete fund elite athlete development through government related funding. Of the major industrialized countries, only the United States does not maintain a socialized sport development system. As a result, American sports governing bodies, such as USA Cycling, must find the resources themselves to create and sustain development programs. USA Cycling is therefore significantly challenged to adequately invest in developing elite athletes which can compete against the best in the world.  The USA Cycling Foundation was created with the primary purpose of raising money to support USA Cycling’s elite athlete development programs, including those supporting young athletes (juniors and Under-23) and women.  Support the future of American cycling by making a donation today!!

With the support of the USA Cycling Foundation, USA Cycling maintains development pathways for various disciplines of competitive cycling through regional and national camps, racing series, domestic and European training bases and regular international competitions.  It is the compilation of these efforts that make up USA Cycling’s National Development Program, which aims to provide promising young athletes with the support they need to excel at the highest levels of professional and Olympic cycling. This program annually supports approximately 350 American junior, under-23 and women athletes participating in national and international racing programs, in all Olympic cycling disciplines.

An integral part of USA Cycling’s National Development Programs is the regular entry of our best development athletes in the international competitions such as UCI World Cup, World Championship and other high level national events.  From the kermess style circuit racing of northern Europe to the big stage races in France and Italy, and the Super-Cross, Mountain Bike and Track World Cups around the globe, USA Cycling fields our top prospects wherever possible. This regular exposure to the fastest bike racing in the world continues to set the bar for our future Olympians.
