USA Cycling announces winners of the 2011 election


Colorado Springs, Colo. (September 16, 2011) — USA Cycling is pleased to announce and congratulate the winners of its 2011 election for the 30 open seats on its seven new sport committees.

“I would like to welcome the newly-elected members of our sport committees and applaud them for taking the initiative to run for a position within USA Cycling’s committee structure,” said Steve Johnson, CEO of USA Cycling. “I truly appreciate the effort and passion displayed by all of the candidates who ran; and I look forward to working with the sport committees to help shape the future of bike racing in America.”

Earlier this year,USA Cycling’s Board of Directors approved a revised organizational governance plan with the goal of ensuring the bylaws and operating principles of the company accurately reflect the current business models of the sport today and for the foreseeable future. The new governance structure is designed to clarify roles and responsibilities and eliminate ambiguity in the original documents created in 1995.

The old associations (USCF, NORBA, USPRO, BMXA and NCCA) have been replaced by seven sport-specific committees: BMX, Collegiate, Cyclo-cross, Mountain Bike, Professional, Road and Track. Members of the pre-existing association trustee boards who had time remaining on their elected terms were transitioned to appropriate sport committees. Elections were then held from September 1 through 15 for the remaining open positions.

More information can be found on USA Cycling's Governance webpage, including the Amended and Restated Bylaws of USA Cycling, Inc., the Second Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, and a complete list of sport committee representatives.
