EuroCrossAcademy (ECA) develops aspiring, young student-athletes, ages 14-22, through summer domestic preparation camps and European competition opportunities. Founded in 2003 by Geoff Proctor, the program focuses on long-term, holistic development through both a character-driven curriculum and a process-to-performance philosophy. Sequentially, ECA provides a critical experiential step in the cyclocross development pathway, from domestic racing to international competition. In this way, ECA acts as a bridge to, potentially, the national team and U23 and professional opportunities. ECA’s overarching objective is to use the forum of bike racing to teach valuable life-skills and cultivate a spirit of giving back that student-athletes can then apply to their professional and community lives. Through this process, ECA encourages its alumni to act as life-long participants, ambassadors, and advocates for cycling sport.

The Pro Cyclist Foundation has been proud to provide ongoing support to ECA since 2023.
