USA Cycling Track Sprint ID Camps
This year, USA Cycling is going to be holding track sprint-focused talent ID camps to help find America’s next medal hopes. We hope to make these events an annual appearance on the track calendar to help give riders the opportunity to showcase their talent to USA Cycling.
Each camp will consist of power-based tests followed by assessments on the track. Following each camp, riders will be given analysis sheets showing their current form with guidelines on how to take it to the next step. USA Cycling will be targeting 14-18-year-olds who have at least two years riding experience, but may be able to accommodate riders up to the age of 23 depending on experience. You will get a chance to meet and interact with the national track sprint coaches and pick up valuable training techniques and tactics that will help drive your career forward.
