USA Cycling Podium Bonus
The goal of this program is to provide additional incentive to our top athletes to attend critical international events. These bonuses are for championship events that are in Olympic disciplines at the elite level.
Provide additional compensation to athletes who are reaching the podium in events that have implications for start positions at world championships and Olympic Games. Each year a "pool" of money will be set aside for these world medal athletes.
