Roger Jay Young (born May 21, 1953) is a retired American cyclist. He was part of the United States team that won a gold medal in the 4000 m pursuit at the 1975 Pan American Games. He competed at the 1972 Summer Olympics in the sprint, but failed to reach the final.[1] In 1973 he won the national title in track sprint.[2]
