As revealed in an interview published on CyclingTips in August, Greg Henderson has joined USA Cycling following the end of his professional racing career.

Forty-one-year-old Henderson raced this season with US Pro Continental team UnitedHealthcare, and has since called time on his career.

“We have been aggressively pursuing the world’s best leaders and specialists, and we are excited to announce another strong addition to our team,” USAC CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall said in a statement. “Greg is widely regarded for his integrity and leadership, which, combined with his deep understanding of what it takes to succeed at the highest level, will make him a powerful asset to our organisation.”

Henderson and his family have bought a house in Boulder, Colorado and expect to live there for the next few years. Henderson will be in Bergen, Norway to help the US team in the Worlds road races.
