Published December 9, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (BRAIN) — Steve Johnson, president and CEO of USA Cycling, announced Tuesday that he will step down from his post next October following the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, which will be held in Richmond, Virginia. Johnson has been with USAC for more than 15 years.  

"Steve has taken USA Cycling from a nearly bankrupt and dysfunctional assemblage to a financially sound organization that serves its members and develops winning athletes. USA Cycling is well positioned for the future," said Bob Stapleton, the chair of the organization's board. "We will begin a search for Steve's replacement in January and are planning enough overlap for an effective transition and to make significant progress on key initiatives."

"This will be an exciting and progressive time for our members, partners and employees. We intend to deeply engage with our members across all disciplines, and we will intensify our support of event organizers," Stapleton added. "The organization is on a firm financial footing, and we plan to further grow the company while continuing to develop Team USA Cycling to produce winning young athletes and Olympians."
