Who is this for?
Beginner or first-time "cyclocrossers"
Intermediate riders seeking to review the fundamentals
The goal of this clinic is to take you from cyclocross beginner to race-ready.
Cyclocross, gravel, and MTB bikes welcome. You should have MTB pedals and shoes or flat pedals.
Cyclocross basics: dismount, carry, barriers, remount, corners, starts
Comfort/techniques for various surfaces: sand, off-cambers, steep ups/downs
Equipment: How to select tires/pressure, bike maintenance, shoes/spikes for CX
Think like a "crosser:" when to run vs. ride, line choice, attacking and blocking
During Zoom Session, we will
Discuss cyclocross bike tech, tire selection, and tire pressure selection.
Consider cyclocross tactics. How does the discipline differ from road and MTB?
Review technique points using visuals of World Cup athletes.
Discuss race day: preride strategy, warmup protocols, fueling suggestions, etc.
Clinic Cost: $120 for full clinic
Zoom ONLY registration for $15
Pre-Registration ONLY at Bike Reg.
NEW THIS YEAR: Triple C Clinics are no longer permitted via USA Cycling. You do NOT need a USA Cycling license to participate.
