A new team of young cyclers has been born in Costa Rica, following the motivation to create a foundation for the sport in the country. The youth team is called Leones Naranja.
It’s members come from all parts of the country. Many were sought out and others applied. They are thinking ahead and dreaming of becoming international cyclists who represent Costa Rica.
For years, sponsors supported already known athletes. The creators of this new association saw the need to invest in minor league athletes who will have the chance to be the next Andrey Amador. By investing in the sport at the roots, they guarantee elite, professional cyclists in the long term.
Any young person can join the school to learn about fundamentals, tactics, and techniques of cycling. They are provided with equipment and can earn scholarships so that they can completely focus on studying and training. Two team members have already won championships.
