G2 Junior Cyclocross Development

Welcome to the G2 Junior Cyclocross Development Program. The goal of this initiative is to develop a program that enables young athletes to learn and grow in the sport of cycling.

Why G2?:

It is GVCC’s next generation…GVCC’s 2-point-0… It is the future.

Why Cyclocross?

Cyclocross is the perfect way to introduce young athletes to cycling. All events are held off the road, usually in a park setting, where parents can watch and young riders can be safe. The courses include various obstacles such as sand, barriers, hills that will beFUN challenges for young athletes. The regional cyclocross race season is almost every weekend from September to December. Race days have a festival atmosphere with competition from beginners to international pros! The GVCC Junior Cyclocross Program will give young athletes an opportunity to learn about the sport, develop bike handling skills, prepare to race in regional events, and most importantly have fun!

GVCC Junior Cyclocross Program Events

As a part of the GVCC Junior Development program, young athletes will take part in a weekly practices that focus on the various skills needed in the sport while having fun! Each week, riders will focus on different obstacles and gradually build throughout the series. The events will be scaled to accommodate both new and returning riders. The schedule for the weekly events can be found here: schedule
