We are so excited to have received the 2013 ‘Club of the Year’ award from USA Cycling! Our club has grown so much and we want to thank all of the wonderful athletes, parents and volunteers that have gotten us to where we are today. We are proud to put this award next to our 2012 and 2011 ‘Club of the Year’ awards.
“For the third straight year, Team Velosport Club took the prize in the junior/interscholastic division. The 68-member team offers age and skill-level targeted programs, including everything from safety training for 10-year-olds to European stage race trips for the older juniors. The club promotes events like the Curt Sutliff Memorial Santiago Canyon TT Series, the SCNCA Elite, Masters, & Juniors ITT Championships, the SCNCA Team Time Trial Championships, and Krosstoberfest. Additionally, the club put on its fifth annual Rokform Rock ‘n Road Junior Development Camp with the goal of simulating the experience of a USA Cycling Junior Development Camp. Club members also benefitted from velodrome sessions, workout sessions, team rides, elite team rides, team BBQs and picnics, and so many other unique opportunities.”
