NATIONAL JUNIOR TRAVEL PROGRAM (NJTP) 

The NJTP gives the opportunity for U17, U19 and U23 riders to attend selected events under the supervision of experienced and accredited coaches and mechanics, without requiring parent/guardian accompaniment. Athletes are met at the destination airport and all accommodation, meals, ground transport and race support logistics are taken care of until they are returned to the airport at the end of the camp. Planning is underway for the 2023 program encompassing the XCO and DHI National Series and National Championships. Additional disciplines and events will be added during 2023.
