For the second consecutive year, the Boulder Junior Cycling Team has won USA Cycling’s Center of Excellence Award.

The award recognized the team for achieving significant national and international results, placing riders into National Team programs and landing riders onto world championship rosters.

Five athletes from the BJC/Tokyo Joe’s Development squad participated in 2009 USA Cycling Training Camps and Worlds qualifying races including Jill Behlen, Brae Patten, Ellen Patten, Wesley Geer and Lydia Tanner.

The 2009 UCI mountain bike world championships in Canberra, Australia included two BJC athletes. The top U.S. junior rider was Jill Behlen placing 16th and the top-ranked U-23 U.S. rider was Chloe Forsman in 15th place, who is a previous member of the BJC Development Program and is expected to ride for Tokyo Joe’s again in 2010.

Boulder Junior Cycling, formerly known as Boulder DEVO, is one of five programs to also receive funding for its development of junior and U23 cycling athletes.
