RACING ADMINISTRATION


The United States Cycling Federation (USCF), headquartered at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, oversees amateur bicycle road racing in the United States. The National Off-Road Bicycle Association, affiliated with the USCF, governs mountain bike racing.

The International Cycling Union, to which both organizations belong, controls road and mountain bike racing worldwide. Other organizations include the Professional Racing Organization, which oversees professional competition in the United States; the National Collegiate Cycling Association, which governs college racing; the National Bicycle League, which supervises BMX racing; and the Human Powered Vehicle Association, which controls recumbent and alternative bicycle events.
