USA Cycling 2010 Northwest Athlete Development Camp
Pacific University
Forest Grove, OR
August 1-6, 2010

The purpose behind the USACycling Regional Development Camps is
multi-faceted. First and foremost it provides a development opportunity for
our younger riders. Over the course of the six day camp, participants will
practice skills that are specific to the camp discipline, enjoy
informational discussions about nutrition, bike mechanics, training and take
part in standardized field testing that is consistent with all of the
endurance-based camps. In 2009 we had 15 riders from around the NW/NorCal
take part in this unique opportunity. Please see website for photos from the
2009 camp experience!

Multiple camps have selected campers for elite junior competitions in the
past (e.g. Tour of the Red River Gorge for road, Le Tour de L'Abitibi for
road, and Mt. Snow for MTB). Plans are in progress for these or similar
opportunities to be available again in 2010.
