In 2017-2018, we will be re-focusing on rider development – working with top juniors in the Front Range of Colorado as well as select National level teams competing in the U.S. Pro Road Tour.
We are proud to again provide head coaching services to the 2016 Melton Design Build/GS CIAO Juniors Road squad. In 2015, the team won the Best All-Around Team competition in three age categories in the Rocky Mountain Road Cup, as well as taking four individual CO state championships! In 2016, you can check out this super bunch of kids, aged 12-18, at local BRAC events around the state of Colorado!
We will also be directing with the Gateway Harley Davidson U25 team at select USA Cycling Pro Road Tour stage race events throughout the country. This great program has a strong history of developing riders for the pro ranks and we look forward to being a part of it!
We are also excited to build and direct the 2016 North Memorial Men’s Composite Pro Team at this year’s Northstar Grand Prix. We have been able to pull together a bunch of ringers for the event including 2013 overall winner Mike Friedman and CX National Champion Jeremy Powers! They are joined by a bunch of professionals and up and coming amateurs. You can learn more about the team and its experiences here.
