"To provide motivated bicycle racers under the age of 23 with the opportunity, guidance and resources to develop into the next generation of professionals both on and off the bike."
The mission of our program is clear and strategic and emulates the wisdom expressed by three time Tour de France Champion Greg LeMond:
“Perhaps the single-most important element in mastering the techniques and tactics of racing is experience. Once you have the fundamentals, acquiring the experience is a matter of time.”
The Hagens Berman U-23 roster is made up of select riders ages 16-23. Many of the riders are currently a part of the USA Cycling national team pool and already have European racing experience.
Our program will work in conjunction with USA Cycling to provide our riders with opportunities to race with the national team throughout the year- an experience that can change a young rider's life forever.
