USMES supports an elite men’s road cycling team; a men’s and women’s para-cycling team; and a men’s and women’s sponsored athlete program that supports athletics that are more individual in nature, including, but not limited to: triathlon, track cycling, mountain biking, women’s road cycling and running. Each program has a slightly different target candidate pool and focus based on the nature of the sport. Ultimately we want to support the highest level military athletes we realistically can within each discipline. Selection as a USMES Elite athlete is very competitive and athletes must meet minimum requirements and adhere to professionalism standards throughout the season. The application window typically opens in September and teams are announced in November. If you would like more information or are interested in applying, please check on the Elite Program FAQ. If you have additional questions, please contact the Elite Programs Director Brian Grasky.
USMES supports club teams for the sports of cycling, triathlon, running and adventure racing. This year-round club program is open to all abilities and is focused on helping athletes set and meet goals, improve health, fitness, and resiliency. Club athletes are supported by their team managers (Cycling, Triathlon, Running, and Adventure Racing) and through our geographically based Regional Coordinators (RCs). Club members receive access to great deals and discounts, education programs, and community building opportunities. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
