USA Track Team Announced For Worlds

USA Announces Track World Championships Bordeaux, France
And Pan American Games Sao Paulo, Brazil

USA Cycling has announced the riders eligible for the teams that will compete in the Union Cycliste Internationale Track World Championships April 13-16 in Bordeaux, France and Pan American Championships April 28-May 7 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Riders qualify for the teams in three ways: At the 2005 USA Cycling National Track Championship in specific disciplines, by meeting time standards in qualification events in Los Angeles, Calif. or by coaches’ selection.

After a promising five medals at the UCI Track World Cup in Carson, Calif., the U.S. national team is looking to continued excellence in these upcoming competitions.
“Of the 25 riders on this team, 21 have either set a time standard of automatically qualified via a National Championship,” said USA Cycling director of track cycling Pat McDonough. “This is a marked difference from last year. The time standards, road rider camps, pro track trade teams and most important, the positive attitude that our coaching staff is pushing – It is beginning to make a difference.”
The U.S. sprint squads are training in Australia to compete in the Australian National Championships, as well as the UCI Track World Cup Classic March 3-5 in Sydney, Australia. The women’s endurance squad will also compete in the World Cup.
Many of the men’s endurance riders are in California to compete in early season road events, including the Tour of California.
