The MudFund provides year-round support of cyclocross athlete development in the junior and U23 categories, for men and women. We believe cyclocross is a critical entry point into bike racing for many young riders, and a key discipline for growing competitive cycling in the USA. The MudFund cultivates grassroots development and race efforts around the nation, providing opportunities for young athletes and opening the development pathway to elite level competition. From local and regional development camps, to National Development Camp and National Team racing at select International races and World Cups, the MudFund provides support and structure along the entire pathway. All gifts to the MudFund are restricted solely to cyclocross program support.

Application of Funds

USA Cycling Cyclocross Manager Position

The MudFund supported USA Cycling to hire our first National Cyclocross Manager. Jesse Anthony, former professional cyclist and 7 time CX National Champion who has gone through the ranks in both road and CX, will work on both athletic development and other initiatives that support the growth of cyclocross here in the United States. 

Domestic Talent ID Camps

We are fortunate to have so many dedicated and passionate supporters of cross throughout the country. We plan to supplement and support decades of their valuable work through the expansion of club partnerships and create new CX-focused opportunities for young riders to show their ability and enter the development pipeline.

Center of Excellence and Regional Club Support

Many clubs already have established cyclocross programming, and we plan to recognize those strong cyclocross development programs already in existence, develop and share best practices and create coaching education specific to cyclocross.

World Championship Team Support

The MudFund will support further need-based subsidization of Junior, U23 men/women, and elite women. The World Championships are always center stage as the season wraps up, and with Fayetteville 2022 on the horizon, supporting our Worlds Team becomes crucially important.
