Junior Dropouts

Junior racing is about learning and fun; fun on the road, fun in the dirt and learning to race respectfully and safely — the right way. On this team, we live these words. Sound like the right fit for you, or your son or daughter? We’d love to hear from you.

Who we are:

  • A passionate, dedicated organization supported by the Brazen Dropouts cycling team that teaches children from the ages 10 to 18 years how to race bikes the right way
  • A team open to all ability levels from experienced teens to first-time 10-year-olds
  • Participants in the Wisconsin Cycling Association road and cyclocross calendars
  • Participants in select regional races in the Midwest

Who we are not:

  • An elite junior program with a high-pressure, win-at-all-costs attitude
  • A feeder program for collegiate or professional teams (Although, if a child shows great potential we will foster future development to more advanced under-23, or elite teams)


This team will also teach you or your child how to train to race, and will provide the opportunity for weekly indoor group rides throughout the winter and outdoor team training in the spring and fall. Riders will also have access to a training plan and coaches 24-7.

How to join:

Our team does have an application process. Riders must apply to join. Each participant must adhere to the terms in the team’s contract, including:

  • Participate in at least three of the six required races (three road races in April, three cyclocross in the fall, or a mix of the two)
  • Volunteer at the Brazen Dropouts Bike Swap  in January
  • Volunteer at one of the bike races organized by the Brazen Dropouts
  • Conduct yourself according to the team’s philosophy (have fun, be respectful, and be a steward for the sport) before, during and after races
