COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (BRAIN) — USA Cycling announced Tuesday that a long-time leader of its elite athletic programs, Jim Miller, is leaving the organization to join Training Peaks, a training software company.
Miller’s most recent position at USAC was vice president of high performance. He was with the organization for 16 years, during which time US athletes won 14 Olympic medals.
USAC’s CEO, Derek Bouchard-Hall, said, “Jim has led USA Cycling’s athletics programs to unprecedented success, and we are very grateful for his many contributions to American cycling. He leaves the elite athletics department in outstanding shape, and we have ambitious plans in place to build upon his legacy and accomplish even more in the future.”
Scott Schnitzspahn, the vice president of elite athletics at USA Cycling, said, “We are sad to see Jim go, but we are very pleased he will be joining a partner of USA Cycling’s and will continue to contribute to the American cycling community. We wish him tremendous success.”
USA Cycling said it will not be replacing the vice president of high performance position, and will instead adjust the roles and responsibilities of its recently expanded elite athletics staff.
