USA Cycling is currently the best cycling medal return on investment in the world - we do more with less money than any other powerhouse cycling nation.

 
2021 medal goal: 7-10 medals ($1.9-2.7M/medal

50% medal win rate on targeted events

2012: 9 targets = 4 medals

2016: 10 Targets = 5 medals

2021: 12 Targets = 7+ Medals?

Increasing Foundation funding will allow USA Cycling Athletics to target new events. Our athletes and coaches have consistently proven that when we target an event, we have a good chance to win medals.
