Hammer unveils new women’s organization

Reigning World Champion cyclist Sarah Hammer publicly released her new organization on Monday, July 3. The American Women’s Track Cycling Fund (AWTCF) is designed to fill a void within US cycling. American Hammer said that the organization’s mission will be to support current champions and to nurture and provide assistance to upcoming champions.

The AWTCF will be two-fold with both an elite team and development program. Hammer commented, "It’s been a dream to start a women’s specific track development program. As soon as I won worlds in June the first thing I thought was that this would be a huge opportunity to launch such a program. We already have three clinics planned locally and one in conjunction with the Eastside Wheelmen program in Colorado Springs."
