Junior Development Series

TRACK DEVELOPMENT RACE SERIES (TDRS)

Created in 2019, the Track Development Race Series serves as an identification point and potential pathway entry to the Olympic Development Program for American junior cyclists.

2019 Track Development Race Series
Calendar

The TDRS  uses a season long ranking system where points are awarded to every rider in the 15-18 categories at each event. Points are accumulated in individual events only with a series champion both men and women, sprint and endurance being crowned after Junior Track Nationals. Series champions are awarded invitations to the fall selection camp for the Olympic Development Program (ODP). ODP coaches will also be present at all TDRS events to best identify new and emerging talent.
