2021 USA Cycling Board of Directors Athlete Representative Election

USA Cycling is requesting nominations from eligible athletes to serve as athlete representatives on USA Cycling’s Board of Directors. The nomination period is open for two weeks with the election scheduled to take place on Election Runner between November 15th and November 21st. The top two athletes receiving votes will be elected to three-year terms running through 2024.

USA Cycling Board of Directors

The USA Cycling Board of Directors is composed of eleven members. Four directors are Athlete Representatives elected by their peers, four directors are At-Large Directors elected by the Board, and three directors are USA Cycling Foundation Directors appointed by the USA Cycling Foundation. Meetings are typically held three to four times per year with Board and/or Committee conference calls scheduled between meetings as needed. In person Director attendance is expected at all regularly scheduled meetings.

The USA Cycling Board of Directors represents the interests of the cycling community for USA Cycling in the United States and its athletes by providing USA Cycling with policy, guidance, and strategic direction. The Board oversees the management of USA Cycling and its affairs, but it does not manage USA Cycling. The Board focuses on long-term objectives and impacts rather than on day-to-day management, empowering the Chief Executive Officer of USA Cycling to manage a staff-driven organization with effective Board oversight. It is important to be aware that directors owe USA Cycling a fiduciary duty, which means that directors must carry out their role in good faith, with the care of an ordinary prudent person, and in a manner that is in the best interests of USA Cycling.


Athlete Representatives must be a “10-Year Athlete.” For USA Cycling’s purpose, a “10-Year Athlete” is an athlete who has represented the United States in the Olympic Games, Pan American Games, or World Championship within the previous 10 years. Athlete Representatives must also be members of USA Cycling in good standing.
