OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Ogden just might be the next home of USA Cycling.

The city is one of two places the governing body for Olympic cycling sports is considering for relocation.

USA Cycling will be forced out of its Colorado Springs, Colo., offices if the U.S. Olympic Committee votes to tear down the aging Olympic Training Center.

Organization CEO Steve Johnson says he's impressed with Ogden. A former University of Utah professor, he says he's sees lots of positive changes in the city.

And he says the city presents plenty of bike racing opportunities.

A relocation decision is expected by the end of the year.
