Fourteen USA Cycling Talent ID Camps Slated for 2015

6 Apr, 2015


Fourteen Talent Identification Camps will run in 10 states across the country from June to November to provide USA Cycling with junior talent evaluations while offering athletes a pathway to develop their cycling ability in road, track and mountain bike disciplines.
 
“Talent ID camps were created to provide a safe and healthy environment for each athlete to learn, progress and thrive within the sport of cycling,” said Kevin Dessart, USA Cycling Director of Coaching Education and Athlete Development. “The camps are a great opportunity to identify up-and-coming athletes and provide them the opportunities and education to progress toward the elite ranks of the sport.”

Arizona l'Abitibi Selection Camp will not serve as a selection camp for the CO Mini-Challenge, but will remain a selection camp for Tour de l'Abitibi). Athletes selected will be chosen based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, field test results, rider skills, attitude, etc. This athlete-funded event is offered to provide additional coaching and racing experience with a time trial, criterium and road race. Athletes are responsible for their flights to Denver International Airport and will then be shuttled to the Silt, Colo., where they will spend the weekend with two certified USA Cycling coaches and race as a team. Cost, which is to be determined, will include transportation from Denver, lodging, meals, entry fees, jerseys and coaching.
