“Frazier Cycling has a junior race team that could serve as a role model for other club’s junior development initiatives.  But more importantly the team’s young members themselves are impressive role models when it comes to sportsmanship, supporting each other and respecting other athletes.”

USA Cycling News, October 29, 2007


  • Grow the sport of cycling by developing the next generation of serious cyclists.
  • Train junior cyclists with a focus on principles and values; good sportsmanship, attitude and teamwork.
  • Promote a lifestyle of fitness and exercise to build a healthy environment for families.

When we started our program in 2003, we did not focus on trying to recruit the best athletes.  We wanted to include as many cyclists as possible for improvement and success.  Unlike other junior development programs and cycling organizations we do not target only the gifted cyclist.  We look for candidates who have a good attitude and an interest in cycling.  Our expertise is in developing kids with those characteristics into competent and lifelong cyclists…some who have become national champions.

Frazier Cycling Juniors have won nine junior road national championship titles and 81 junior road national medals.

We believe our junior development program is unique in several ways.  Our program is based on a team structure.  Many cycling groups who ride together call themselves teams but they but may not function or race as a team.  Our coaching and training are focused on the ”true” team approach.   We also recognize that junior cyclists are not little adults and need to “have fun with their teammates” or else they will lose interest in a sport that is very demanding.  Parent participation is a key to our program.  We encourage parents to practice and ride with their children.  It keeps them fit and gives both parent and child an opportunity to share in a healthful activity.

Our program is year round.  Year round training is especially important for people who compete and/or participate in endurance sports such as cycling, running, and swimming.  It is crucial that these people maintain and/or improve their fitness and their technique throughout the year; otherwise, they will find themselves trying to catch up.  During the competitive part of the season, our program concentrates on training that is specific to racing.  During the "off-season", our program offers broader training elements with diversity that includes activities, skills, and exercises that promote long term cycling development.   In addition, the diversity of our "off-season" helps our members avoid burn-out such that they can continue training with enthusiasm and interest.  Another very important aspect of our year round program is that it keeps our team together, which increases their team bond, team spirit, and team loyalty.  These elements are crucial to the continued success of our team and team members.

To summarize, our program takes into account the physical, psychological, physiological, and emotional needs of young cyclists as well as social considerations and gender differences.  We have kept detailed statistics on our team as the members move from young juniors to teens. 

"This is just great! I think the unique and important aspect of your program is that through the years you have collected data, observations etc...;and quantified it for your purposes to develop young athletes. Simply put-you are able to compare apples to apples. In my opinion this is the true definition of a Program.”

Ken Kontor, Publisher Performance Conditioning Cycling

Our Competitive Race Team directly correlates with our mission to develop the next generation of serious cyclists.  Here is a brief out-line of these parts:

Competitive Race Team for ages 6-18

  • Primary Level
  • Intermediate Level
  • Advanced Level (Intermediate-Plus, Honors Team)



Attendance, availably, and skills competency are used to determine a junior's placement in our Competitive Program.  We have three levels for our Competitive Program:


  • Primary Level
  • Intermediate Level
  • Advanced Level (Intermediate-Plus, Honors Team)

Frazier Cycling determines whether or not the cyclist is appropriately meeting the cyclist's designated Program Level based on attendance, commitment, and skills competency.   Based on this evaluation, the cyclist's Program Level may be changed.

All Competitive Program membership levels are included on our race team.  Additionally, there is no explicit or implicit hierarchy regardless of Program Level membership with the exception of the Honors Program, which requires team leadership. 

The program is not recreational cycling; our race team members are groomed to be serious, competitive cyclist.  They are taught traffic safety and behavior, group riding and teamwork, race strategies and tactics, competency improvements, basic equipment information, and fun!

Although the first race of the season is in February and the last is in October, the majority of races are from April to August with a focus on the USA Cycling Junior Road Race National Championships.  During in-season training (March – October), the concentration of the fitness program is by means of cycling and running.  During the off-season (November - February), the program focuses on strength conditioning with the addition of Plyometrics, sit-ups, push-ups, standing broad jump, medicine ball throws, wheelbarrow races, and resistance bands.  Training is year-round.  In the off-season, only Wednesday 6:30 practice moves indoors.  All other practices are outdoors throughout the year.

All Competitive Program Members must abide by Frazier Cycling's Race Team Rules.

Equipment required for all programs:  Helmet, road bike, cycling shoes, clip-less pedals, Frazier Cycling race kit (team jersey and shorts), sun glasses, cycling gloves, and water bottle.  Trainers and blocks are needed for indoor workouts and race site warm-ups.

Why do we mandate the use of power meters by our Honors Program members?

"The ideal training program for any athlete is one that is challenging enough to result in continual improvement, but is not so taxing that it results in illness, injury, or overtraining. Achieving this delicate balance can be difficult in any sport. However, this is especially true in cycling because the resistance to forward motion varies markedly depending on altitude, weather, terrain, road or trail surface, and/or the effects of drafting. Consequently, current or even average speed is often a poor indicator of training intensity, which can make it difficult to regulate the overall training load..."

Andy Coggan, Ph.D., 2004 USA Cycling Expert Coaches Manual

Heart rate training became widely accepted in the 1990's as a way to measure workout intensity. Experts identified various heart rate training zones for specific training intensities, such as recovery, aerobic, tempo, anaerobic threshold, lactate threshold, VO2 Max, etc. Unfortunately, heart rate can be influenced by a variety of factors such as altitude, ambient temperature, hypo-hydration/dehydration, infections, recent illness, and fatigue, Hence, heart rate is not wholly reliable for quantifying workout intensity. For our sport of cycling, these limitations have been avoided by using power meters to directly measure power. Intensity levels are determined by a testing procedure utilizing a power meter to capture data as the cyclist performs the test. From the analysis of the "power test" results an individual's power levels for the specific training intensities can be determined and these power levels can be applied to the individual's workouts and incorporated within a training plan to satisfy Dr. Coggan's statement. Indeed, that is our basis for requiring that all Honors Program members use a power meter during training and testing.

Periodic power testing results will show progress and identify individual strengths and weakness for an individual. These results will allow our coaches to determine if adjustments should be made to individual workouts and training plans that will produce continual improvement. In particular, Frazier Cycling measures an individual's sprint power, anaerobic threshold power, and lactate threshold power, which are the key data points measured for national class junior cyclists. We compare our team members' results to their past results and juniors of the same age group and gender. We use these comparisons help us to make any necessary workout/training plan changes and to reestablish training objectives and performance goals.

Coaching includes a training plan, weekly consultation, and Frazier Cycling Partners Team Membership. The plan includes personalized daily workouts including descriptions, durations, and intensities, with periodic testing. The athlete is expected to maintain daily logs (electronic, TrainingPeaks), which are analyzed by our coaches. Testing is conducted under the supervision of our coaches. Test Analysis includes an assessment with recommendations for performance improvements and any necessary training modifications. Full statistics for training, testing, and racing including time splits, mileage, speed, heart rate data, power, performance analysis, and progress charts are maintained. Three month minimum.


All Frazier Cycling Juniors are required to have "Junior Gearing".  "Blocking" cassette gears is not permitted on our team.

By general USA Cycling Rule 1J6, juniors participating in road (road races, criteriums and time trials) are limited to a chaingear ratio of 7.93 meters (26 feet 0 inches). This means that with the chain in the bikes largest gear combination (biggest front ring and smallest possible rear cog), the bike cannot travel more than 26 feet with a single turn of the cranks.

To guarantee compliance with Rule 1J6, we recommend that our junior's bicycles that have 700c wheels use a compact crank-set with a 50-tooth chain-ring as the largest front ring and a 14x25 cassette (smallest cog of 14 teeth) on the rear wheel.  We recommend the use of a 50-tooth chain-ring rather than 52-tooth because most juniors, in particular U15, are unable to generate enough force and velocity (cadence) to achieve power with a 52x14 combination.  For lighter riders riding downhill, the circumstance is more problematic. 

P = F × d/t

Speed (or velocity) equals distance divided by time. 

Power equals force times velocity (pedaling cadence)

P = F × v

Note: Juniors are classified as race ages under 19.

The link below contains a chart that compares junior maximum gearing (52/14 & 50/14 largest ring/smallest cog combinations) and cadence (RPM) for largest gears to achieve various speeds (MPH) with actual wheel circumferences using selected tires.  Senior maximum gearing (often 53/11 largest ring/smallest cog combinations) is included in the chart, too.  Also, included is USA Cycling's expected rollout lengths according to page 136 of the 2006 USA Cycling rulebook.

Practice/Ride Attendance and Commitment

Attendance, availably, and skills competency determine placement in our Competitive Program (Primary, Intermediate, Advanced).   Attendance is based on participation in rides and/or practices (races and special events are not included).

The individual's commitment to attending cycling practice is evaluated according to our attendance criteria and it is reflected on the junior's annual Report Card.  The score for "Attendance" is based on criteria that applies for each level.   The grading scores range from a high 4 to low 1.


Here is the Attendance Criteria:

Arrives on time for practices, rides and races = 0.5 points

Comes prepared for practices and races = 0.5 points

Percent Attendance – Based on three practices/rides/races per week for Primary Program Members; five practices/rides/races per week for Intermediate Program Members; six practices/rides/races per week for Advanced; seven practices/rides/races per week for Honors Team.

o 10-33% = 1 point

o 34-66% = 2 points

o 67-100% = 3 points

Frazier Cycling determines whether or not the cyclist is appropriately meeting the designated Program Level based on attendance, commitment, and skills competency.   Based on this evaluation, the cyclist's Program Level may be changed.

Skill/Fitness practices are coached sessions that afford the student the instruction necessary to handle the bicycle within group rides and/or races.  Fitness is addressed with intervals, drills, and simulated races during these practice sessions.  The practices appear on the weekly ride schedules.  The locations for our current practice sessions are Cross Pointe Way (formally Distribution Drive) in Duluth, Bunten Park Athletic Building in Duluth, and Children's Healthcare Warehouse in Duluth. 

Race Team practices are coached sessions that give specific instructions for racing preparation, skills, strategy, and tactics, etc.  Typically, Frazier Cycling has one of these sessions per week on Saturdays at 11:30 a.m.  Check the weekly ride schedules for exact times and locations. 

Group training rides are our club rides that appear on the weekly ride schedules.  Training rides include the Flowery Branch 50 (FB-50), Lunch-time 18 & 20 (LT-18, LT-20), Office Park 21 (OP-21) or “Laps”, Hill Repeats, Gary's 23-miler, etc.  Eligibility for these rides is based on the student's Group designation.




Juniors can receive the same coaching (training) program as our Frazier Cycling Juniors.  The On-line Juniors Coaching Program includes a training calendar/schedule with personalized daily workouts including descriptions, durations, and intensities, with periodic testing. 

The athlete is expected to maintain daily logs (electronic) via Training Peaks, which are analyzed by our coaches (testing is conducted by the individual, i.e. self-test).  Test Analysis includes an assessment with recommendations for performance improvements and any necessary training modifications.  Statistics for training, testing, and racing include data such as mileage, speed, heart rate, power, performance analysis, and progress charts. 

A power meter (such as CycleOps PowerTap, SRM, Stages, SRAM Quarq, Garmin Vector, etc.) is required for juniors who are race age 13 and older (12+).

Daily communications between the on-line junior and our coaches occurs through TrainingPeaks.

$175/month (or one-time payment: $1925/year) for Juniors with race ages 13 year and older; $150/month (or one-time payment: $1650/year) for Juniors with race ages under 13 years (U13)

3 month minimum.
