USA Cycling’s Center of Excellence designation is awarded to select junior and Under-23 development teams which excel in the development of young cyclists. These Centers of Excellence programs consistently demonstrate the ability to develop young riders into nationally competitive athletes, by sending cyclists annually to USA Cycling Regional and National development camps as well as National Development Programs.
Since the program’s inception fifteen years ago, the USA Cycling Foundation has distributed over $500,000 in grant awards directly to these grass-roots development efforts. Center of Excellence Grants are made possible by the generous donations to the USA Cycling Foundation.
