You are invited!
As a USA Cycling license holder and member you are invited to attend the Inaugural USA Cycling Summit in Colorado Springs, CO November 10-14, 2004.

In addition to the conference style offerings, USA Cycling will be offering a specific track for soigneurs or those interested in learning more about becoming a soigneur.

Those completing the soigneur track will be issued a certificate of completion.

Two special features of the Summit will be a presentation by Freddy Viaene on what goes on behind the scenes at the Tour de France. Freddy has served as a soigneur for many teams in the Tour including US Postal Service. Freddy’s presentation will give even the most avid cycling fan a fuller appreciation for Le Tour.
The other special feature will be a fund raising dinner for the USA Cycling Development Foundation that will, in part, recognize the work of the late Ed Burke, Ph.D. Dr. Burke served USA Cycling in many capacities and his passion for cycling led many scientists to become interested in cycling and many cyclists to become interested in science. If you are interested in learning more about the USA Cycling Development Foundation, please visit the USACDF website at http://www.usacdf.org/. The Foundation Dinner cost is $50 for those attending the Summit. If you wish to attend the Dinner but not the Summit, the cost is $100. Other ways to support the Foundation include purchasing clothing which can be done at http://www.velowear.com/usacdf.html.
The cost for the Summit for USA Cycling license holders/members is $299 which includes the Summit, housing on the USOC Complex and meals (except for the Foundation Dinner). The price for non-USA Cycling license holders/members is $349.
Housing and Meals

Summit attendees staying on complex and flying into and out of the Colorado Springs Airport will have free shuttle service between the airport and the US Olympic Complex.
Those wishing to stay off complex will have meals provided during the conference.
