Colorado Springs, Colo. (June 12, 2014) -- On the heels of generous incentives offered by her Olympic medal-winning teammates Sarah Hammer and Dotsie Bausch, Jennie Reed is contributing additional grants to any male or female juniors rider that breaks a national record in the flying 200 meter, 500 meter time trial, 1km, 2km or 3km races at the upcoming USA Cycling Juniors Track National Championships

The breakdown of awards will be as follows:
Age 10-12 - $200
Age 13-14 - $300
Age 15-16 - $400
Age 17-18 - $500

"These young riders need to know that Olympic track cyclists are paying attention and we want to do everything we can to help create a pathway for them to compete at the Olympic level," said Reed. "This is a small part of rebuilding, but there will be more to come. These riders are the future of our sport."
