USA Cycling has hired Doug Martin as director of BMX programs, the governing body announced Thursday.
With BMX set to debut as a medal sport at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, USA Cycling created the new position ” to help clarify and communicate processes and guidelines by which BMX athletes and teams qualify for competitions,” USAC announced on its web site.
”The addition of BMX to the Olympic Games is an incredible opportunity for both the sport of BMX racing and American cycling in general,” said Steve Johnson, director of athletics.
“In addition to an intimate knowledge of the BMX industry and community, Doug brings a tremendous amount of experience organizing and managing international programs and teams.”
