Junior race team in the plans for 2022
As I watched the Tokyo Games, I reflect on the pathway to where TWENTY24 is now and think about what the road ahead will look like. I am watching athletes like Coryn Rivera, Ruth Winder, Jennifer Valente, and Chloé Dygert—all once juniors in our development program—young girls with Olympic dreams.
Athletes of TWENTY12, and TWENTY16 and TWENTY24 scored 14 Olympic/Paralympic medalists, 17 world champions, and countless national champions hailing from the USA, Canada, Cuba and Mexico. A further 5 team alumni have represented Team USA in the past three Olympic Games. The team model enables experienced and elite riders to perform at their highest potential while offering junior riders a groundbreaking mentor program, oh and we have fun too!
When the team was formed in 2005, the goal was to create a pathway for athletes to the 2012 London Olympics, and accordingly the team would be named TWENTY12 (London Olympics), TWENTY16 (Rio Olympics), TWENTY20 (Tokyo Olympics) and now TWENTY24 (Paris Olympics. The name concept was conceived on the Oakley bus at Interbike.
The TWENTY24 program is responsible for developing many of the most successful American female cyclists to date. Creating opportunities for elite, junior development and para-cycling athletes. TWENTY24 has established a consistent athlete talent pipeline for road and track cyclists and additionally providing opportunities for athletes who excel in the virtual world of Zwift eSports and the new dynamic discipline of gravel racing that fosters both high performance, mass participation and community connection.
