USA CYCLING HOSTS CAMP FOR TOP COLLEGIATE WOMEN
2004 USA Cycling Women’s Collegiate and Talent Identification Camp
Colorado Springs, Colo. (May 14, 2004) — USA Cycling is excited to announce this year’s 2004 Women’s Collegiate and Talent Identification Camp, an important development initiative funded by a special grant from USA Cycling’s Development Foundation.
The camp’s purpose is to discover and identify the next pool of potential cycling stars and to begin a relationship with them in order to assist with their further athletic development and track their progress over the next four years.
“In a nutshell,” explains USAC Development Foundation Director Steve McCauley, “We are looking for the next generation of National Team athletes.”
The road camp, which will take place July 13-18, 2004 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, is made possible by a grant from the USA Cycling Development Foundation.
Athletes will be invited to the camp based on their performance at the 2003 Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals or this year’s Collegiate Road Nationals. The camp will include lectures on training, nutrition, tactics and strategy, as well as performance testing, bike fit evaluations and intensive group training rides and a time trial.
“Those chosen to participate in future programs will demonstrate a level of physiological and psychological capacities that suggest the ability to succeed at the International level,” McCauley commented.
The core staff for the camp will include coaches from the USA Cycling Athletics Department and the U.S. Women’s National Team. Guests from the National Women’s Team Performance Enhancement Team will also contribute.
The grant from the USA Cycling Development Foundation to fund this camp is made possible by the generous individual donors to the Foundation. For more information on the Foundation supported athlete development programs and how to give, please visit www.usacdf.org
