USA CYCLING JUNIOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Please sign this petition asking USA Cycling to allow the junior cycling community to be part of the discussion and decision on when, where and whether junior national events take place this year, if at all feasible.
As you may be aware, USA Cycling is reviewing the schedule for the various national events. On April 30, it was announced that Elite/Pro and Masters 2020 National Championship events for both road and track are likely to be rescheduled at a postponed date, while Junior events are likely to be cancelled. We certainly understand that changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic are uncontrollable, and that cancellation of events might be unavoidable. However, we urge USA Cycling to consider Junior races equally as important as Elite/Pro and Masters.
We want to work with USA Cycling to be creative in finding opportunities if at all possible to hold events that are important to Junior development in cycling. We would like to have a voice in these decisions, and an opportunity to help find creative solutions to address scheduling, fundraising, and attendance.
USA Cycling – please give Juniors an equal opportunity to compete in 2020 National Championships. We are the future of USA Cycling, and we want to be a part of the conversation.
