Team USA

BMX Racing

Meticulous calculation and training, precise and powerful execution. Check out Team USA riders competing in BMX racing, and the programs that help Team USA dominate international events.

USA Cycling is fortunate that in BMX Racing, we have a huge talent pool of riders to pull from USABMX. Our coaches attend nearly all USABMX National events and therefor are always on the look for talented young individuals. We're also very fortunate in this country that we have some amazing Supercross BMX tracks such as Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center, Chula Vista, CA; Rock Hill BMX Supercross, Rock Hill, SC; Rockstar Energy Bike Park, Houston, TX; Sarasota, FL and Derby City BMX, Louisville, KY.

Please email JStaff@usacycling.org if you're interested in finding out how to make it as an Elite Supercross rider.

Devo Program

The Devo Program is designed to allow young (16-18 year old) the opportunity to receive specific high performance training for BMX, access to the Supercross World Cup BMX track(s), and to experience a day in the life of a U.S. Olympic athlete. Furthermore, by providing these opportunities, we hope to progress the skill level needed to be competitive at the highest level of international BMX competition. This will help familiarize them with the bigger, faster, and more demanding style of BMX racing, which is contested at the UCI Supercross World Cup series, the World Championships, and the Olympic Games. All BMX Development camps will take place at the EAS Training Center in Chula Vista, CA; while utilizing the Supercross BMX tracks, the Chula Vista BMX track, the Skills Development Grounds, and access to the USOPC Strength and Conditioning and Sports Performance facilities. Daily classroom education and video review is also a big part of the camps to instruct athletes in the areas of professionalism, sports nutrition, recovery, and training techniques.

Due to the Pandemic, all programming is on hold and we will restructure programming as soon as things get moving again.

Please email JStaff@usacycling.org with any questions regarding the Devo Program.

Academy Program

The goal of the Academy Program is to identify young athletes that are at a pivotal point in their careers and looking to prepare for competition in the Elite Classes. USA Cycling works in conjunction with USA BMX, who runs specific events that help us identify riders, that could benefit from additional training opportunities alongside some of our top Elite riders in Chula Vista, CA at the Elite Training Facility.

USA Cycling BMX Olympic Ranking

USA Cycling Olympic Rankings were designed to give the athletes a very clear and simple process to follow in order to make the USA Olympic Team. Our mission is to win medals in Tokyo 2021 and therefore we are looking for riders that are medal capable. By setting high standards we hope that the athletes basically select themselves through their hard work, dedication and results.

Currently (as of May 2020) we have qualified 3 start spots for the women's event and 2 start spots for the men's event.

USA Cycling Power Rankings

The USA Cycling Power Rankings are used as a reference for World Cup funding, World Championship and Pan Am Games selection. The Power Rankings track a riders performance over a rolling 12 month period which we feel gives a fair representation of a riders performance. USA Cyclings' mission is to field the best teams at World Cup, World Championship, Pan Am Games and Olympic Games. All these events take place on Supercross style tracks, therefore USA Cycling only counts scores from these types of events.

USA Cycling is proud to support our BMX National Team athletes who are the ultimate ambassadors of our mission to win, celebrate and inspire.

Athletes may qualify to the National Team based on the following qualification guidelines.
