YOUTH TRACK DEVELOPMENT SERIES
The Youth Track Development Series is designed to optimize the development of young athletes through a format that removes the emphasis on winning and instead focuses on skill development. Riders select their category based on their own ability, allowing athletes at different levels of physical maturity or time in the sport to participate in meaningful mixed gender competition. This also provides better opportunities for young riders to develop skills and progress as an athlete, and be challenged by other riders of a similar ability.
