2013 Youth and Junior development team announcement

11.01.2012 – Cycling BC is pleased to announce the 2013 Development teams program.  In 2013 we will be continuing our Youth and Junior Development team programs. The BMX cyclists from these programs will receive coaching and assistance in development into highly competitive athletes who will hopefully represent BC at future World Championships and Olympic Games.

Youth Development team will continue for its seventh year. The team will target younger athletes with potential and develop their skills, preparing them for the high performance team. Athletes were selected from performances at the BC Championships and the BC Cup Series and were the top two female athletes and top three male athletes from each age group. Cycling BC will continue to offer the development camps to all youth (11 & under) Cycling BC members for a per usage fee.  Team members will be able to take part in our youth development camps at no fee.  All the Youth Development camps in the 2013 season will be flats only, as the focus of the camps are skill based.  Having the athletes on flat pedals allows them to focus on the basic components to perform a skill.

There was a great deal of interest in the program this year and we thank everyone that applied.  Team selection for both development teams was decided by the 2013 selection criteria and a few select Coaches choice positions, from outside performances and injuries.
