Established in 2010, Cutaway Bike Camp (originally named Charlottesville Bike Camp) provides junior development and youth development cycling camps. Cutaway Bike Camp also orchestrates a youth boys and a youth girls mountain bike team. Since 2010, Cutaway Bike Camp has worked with over 300 campers and helped each improve his or her cycling skills.
When Andy and Peter started Cutaway Bike Camp in 2010, it was a direct result of the high quality of riding in the the Charlottesville area. With over 30 years experience training and racing around the world, they fully appreciated how outstanding the C'ville area is for cycling. With a passion for sharing their enthusiasm and expertise in the sport with others, they developed a wide range of camps for novice to neo-pro junior cyclists. Camps have been a springboard to introduce hundreds of youth to the sport and to prepare junior racers for elite and professional racing. Whether a rider is a beginner or a current national champion, Cutaway builds the rider's confidence and skills.
Miller School of Albemarle is a coeducational boarding and day school located 10 miles west of Charlottesville and the Unversity of Virginia. The school is home to the world's premiere junior development cycling program. The cycling program works with an international team of student-athletes who aspire to achieve success at the highest level of the sport and excel in academics. MSA has sent two riders directly to the pro ranks, 3 to UCI Road Cycling World Championships, and numerous to National Teams. Over the past half decade, MSA has built over 10 miles of pristine single track trails on its 1,600-acre campus used daily by students during the school year. The school has a fully outfitted bike shop on campus that houses two Park Tool-outfitted work areas and a fleet of Specialized road and mountain bikes.
Cutaway Bike Camp is owned by Andy Guptill and Peter Hufnagel. Both Andy and Peter are teachers, administrators, and coaches at Miller School of Abemarle. Phillip Robb joined Cutaway Bike Camp in 2011; he brought with him over a decade of high-level cycling experience and a half-decade of coaching experience with youth. In 2013, Tim House and Joe Hoskins helped create the Cutaway Boys and Girls Mountain Bike Teams. Professional cyclist, Andrea Dvorak, is a camp counselor for overnight camps and works with female athletes. Additional camp counselors include local professional cyclists, MSA graduates, and CBC alumni.
Cutaway Bike Camp is an independently owned and operated LLC. It uses Miller School of Albemarle campus and facilities for camps, but it is not connected to the school in any legal capacity.
