How is the “Youth Generation” category selected? ?

Let’s take the example of the Women’s team in 2023.

At the start of the season, a “Road Youth U23 Women” collective is established based on national and international performances in 2022 and the athlete’s international experience. It aims to develop a high-performance French team for the 2023 European Championships.

Each course or event is part of this overall objective but also of a long-term training objective for athletes.

The National Coach will integrate Elite Women into the Teams in order to bring international experience to the team and contribute to the training objective at the  highest level  for the next generation of cyclists.

The selection criteria is based on a number of factors, performance criteria should be understood as behavior having a decisive impact on the course of the competition (decisive offensive behaviour, defense of a leader’s jersey, risk-taking to win the competition, etc.). These performances are not only centered on the raw result but on the capacity to obtain them. These performances are observed in international events and in the Coupe de France N1 events.
