About Women’s Cycling Development Team
Crazy Cat Cyclery Women’s Team began over countless hours of conversation on training rides amongst a tight knit group of friends who share a passion for cycling. The talks became focused on creating a place where young athletes can be groomed to become professional adults in environments free of negative influences. Thus the ideals and goals of Crazy Cat Cyclery Women’s Team were set.
Women’s Cycling Development is a team for female cyclists under the age of 23 who are ready to compete at a professional level in the United States. Cyclists who meet these criteria come from wonderful junior cycling programs. Oftentimes when juniors become 18 they are forced into the role of supporting much older racers and go unnoticed. From this position it is hard to get the results to make an impact on the cycling world. Women’s Cycling Development is not only focused on winning races; the ultimate goal is to foster clean, mature athletes prepared to become the next crop of elite American cycling champions.
