Team Velosport Junior & U23 Development strives to provide opportunities to our young athletes to grow in the sport of road and track cycling. We are the largest junior road organization in the USA, and have earned five “Club of the Year” awards from USA Cycling, as well as being a “Center of Excellence” team for seven years. We work with ages 9 – 22 and from beginner to CAT1, in everything from beginner level rides to a three-week Europe race trip for fastest juniors in the country. During that trip, our juniors experience Belgian Kermess racing as well as training rides on famous Flanders routes like Kopenberg, Muur and Paris-Roubaix. We then race a UCI 2.1 four day stage race “Sint-Martinusprijs Kontich” against some of the fastest and most talented riders in the world. Then we take them to view a stage of the Tour de France. We help financially challenged families by providing loaner bikes and donated equipment. We assist all our members with free mechanical support, race reimbursement, free training camps and exposure to other cycling disciplines such as Velodrome riding. Our generous sponsors, such as GU Energy, allow us to provide additional support to our young riders so they get what they need to perform at peak efficiency. Team Velosport keeps it FUN, while helping juniors to achieve their goals in cycling
