FTW Road/Criterium Racing - Skills and Tactics

Presented by Triple C Coaching

Road is a demanding discipline that requires more than just fitness. The learning curve is steep and the speeds can seem frightening at first. The purpose of this clinic is to demystify the discipline and develop confidence in the pack.

Not just a skills clinic, this class is a comprehensive introduction to the discipline.
