Goals/Objectives

  • 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
