The USA Cycling board of directors announced on Thursday that Derek Bouchard-Hall will take over as the organization’s new CEO and president in June, according to Cycling News. Bouchard-Hall is a former U.S. pro criterium champion and executive at online cycling retailer Wiggle.
“I could not be more excited to be returning to the sport I love at this time in its history,” Bouchard-Hall told Cycling News. “We hope to capitalize on the very positive aspects of cycling, including the growth of women’s cycling and the broadening of participation in cycling by those seeking to improve their fitness and well-being. I can’t wait to get started.”
