Coached and Managed by Craig Undem
Cycle U is excited to support junior racing in the Northwest. Our goal is to provide a fun, healthy environment for young racers and expose them to a wide variety of cycling disciplines, build fitness and promote an active lifestyle as well as to develop a group of juniors that can race at the national level.
Our program emphasizes team building and consistency by running weekly team rides around the Seattle area. From January through July we run road rides and mountain bike practices, and from June through December we hold weekly cyclocross practices. Our team members race road, mountain, track, and cyclocross events around the Northwest and volunteer at local races. All kids ages 7-17 are welcomed, regardless of experience or skill level.
Varsity level is for those junior riders who display the consistency and focus to become serious racers and who can ride fast. This program is by invitation only and has separate workouts that will help develop young racers into their full potential to race at top of the local, region, national or world level. It includes Coaching and Bikefitting on an ongoing basis during the program. Cyclocross is the main focus June – Nationals in January, from January – July the team focus will be choosen between Road and Mountain bike depending on the focus of the riders making up the Varsity squad. Any rider wishing to join Varsity must first join the Cycle U Junior team and attend workouts and races to be evaluated by Coach Craig.
