USA Cycling Regional Development Camps
The focus of USA Cycling's Regional Talent ID Camps is skill development along with classroom sessions geared to improving the rider’s training. Camp staff usually includes a camp manager, a lead coach, assistant coaches, athlete alumnus, a mechanic, and ride leaders.
Each USA Cycling Regional Road Camp includes five days of activities, including field testing and other selection activities. The top-performers in the camps nationwide will be considered for an invitation to attend an annual USA Cycling National Talent Identification Camp.
Riders who finish in the top five in at least one Road Development Race Series event in one of the categories listed below are automatically qualified to attend a USA Cycling Regional Talent ID Camp.
