The Summit will consist of a mix of interactive sessions like Zwift workouts, bike skills training and functional strength training sessions as well as 25 speakers including Dr Stacy Sims, PhD. Sims who will present Sunday morning on the subject of training men versus women, how women can and should train differently and how to approach this concept as a coach.

In tandem with the USA Cycling Coaching summit, USA Cycling will also host their second Biannual Junior Summit on November 8, 2018. The Junior Summit will bring together some of the most influential people in Junior cycling and will focus on building a cohesive plan for increasing opportunities and pathways for Junior Cyclists.

“The Summit is a tremendous opportunity for coaches to increase their knowledge from the various subject matter experts presenting, as well as a great opportunity to talk and share insights with the other 200+ coaches who attend. Bringing this wealth of knowledge together every other year proves to be one of the most beneficial educational opportunities for our coaches,” said Kevin Dessart, Director of Coaching Education and Athlete Development for USA Cycling.
