Participants will have the opportunity to talk with Jim Miller, Chief of Sports Performance at USA Cycling, who will provide a bit of clarity to the Olympic Development Academy, a unique semester-based program to create a new, consistent, and sustainable development model across all cycling disciplines; BMX Racing, BMX Freestyle, Cyclocross, Mountain Bike, Road, and Track.
The December 6 Bikechat provides additional information on the newly announced Olympic Development Academy program, which has ignited outspoken and passionate perspectives within the cycling community.
Individuals are seeking more answers on the Olympic Development Academy program, which was launched on the USA Cycling website on November 21, with limited details on available scholarships and navigating this new program. The Bikechat event will provide a forum for questions and dialogue between possible junior athlete candidates and their families directly with USA Cycling leadership knowledgeable about the program.
Youth Cycling Association is a movement dedicated to an inclusive cycling experience for people of all backgrounds, abilities and cultures. The organization challenges socioeconomic barriers in cycling through many inclusive efforts including the free Zoom webinar series “Bikechats,” returning for a second consecutive season.
Says founder of Youth Cycling Association Sean Wilson, Ph.D., “We saw that young cyclists didn’t always have the opportunity to connect with resources, pathways and role models who could help them navigate and be successful in our sport. We are committed to providing greater connection and opportunity in the sport of cycling.”
