USA Cycling has announced that Chuck Hodge as its new Technical Director at USA Cycling.
CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall made the announcement during the USA Cycling Symposium in Colorado Springs.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Chuck come on board as our Technical Director given his years of immense experience as the Technical Director at many large U.S. UCI races, including the 2015 UCI Road World Championships in Richmond last month, and as a contractor with Medalist Sports. He is an undisputed authority of the technical aspects of our sport,” Bouchard-Hall said. “He will be an excellent resource to our valued Officials and will oversee fair competition rules and procedures for all American competitors."
Hodge joins USA Cycling after logging more than 200 days of UCI competition work in the last decade, which includes serving as Technical Director at the 2015 UCI Road World Championships and the 2014 Para Cycling World Championships, as well as the Tour of California, USA Pro Challenge, multiple USA Cycling Pro Road & TT National Championships and the Tour of Missouri. A USAC National and International Certified Race Director and a licensed Official since 1996, Hodge currently sits as Chair of the National Technical Commission and has been an Elite National Commissaire since 2014.
In addition to his years as a Technical Director, Official and Race Director, Hodge has spent much of his career advising and consulting for multiple Race Directors and organizations.
“I am very excited to be joining USA Cycling during this time of transition and look forward to being a part of the positive changes in the organization,” Hodge said. “Coming directly out of both an Officials and Race Director role, I look forward to using this experience to help strengthen USA Cycling's programs in these areas.”
