My name is Jack and I was just selected for the 2018 US Men's Elite World Championship team racing in Valkenburg, Netherlands! After a hard season of training, travel, and sacrifice I will be able to represent the US at the highest level of competition against the best in the world.
Last minute world's team selection results in expensive international trip planning and the JAM FUND, which has supported me throughout the regular season, can only cover so much of my yearly expenses.
I am looking to raise money to help cover the flights, transportation and housing in Europe while I compete in the Hoogerheide World Cup and Valkenburg World Championship races. USA Cycling does provide athlete housing and race support, but their fee was increased this year to $2,200.
This fee in addition to the international flights makes for an expensive trip that is over budget for JAM, a team that not only supports an elite team, but also provides JAM Grants(financial support) to 30 young developing riders. Any additional or unused funds will be donated by me back to the JAM Fund Cycling Team.
I wouldn't have been close to where I am as a cyclist without the knowledge and support of the whole JAM family. The work they do in the cycling community and the difference they make in aspiring athletes lives is unrivaled.
