USA Cycling CEO Rob Demartini Is Leaving the Role for A Job Outside of Cycling

December 14, 2021

He will become the acting CEO and a board member at Purple, which makes mattresses, pillows, and other comfort products.

DeMartini’s departure comes days after the US national cyclocross championships in Illinois, where the presence of a group of people protesting the participation of trans women in women’s sports led some attendees and activists to criticize USA Cycling. Some of those individuals signed a letter that called for DeMartini to resign, although there is no indication that DeMartini’s departure is related. Cycling Tips
