Select Junior Team

The Avout Racing Select Junior Program is a small group of passionate competitive riders ages fifteen to eighteen. Our mission is to set up those athletes for professional cycling once they leave the junior ranks. This is done by individual training programs, intensive practice sessions, building tactical knowledge of the sport, and racing as often as possible. The riders who are selected for this program help out in their local communities and maintain a high grade point average in school.
