For beginners or intermediate riders who want an extensive refresher
Ideally, you should have a cross bike or gravel bike. MTBs are welcome too. MTB or flat pedals (no road pedals) please!
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, when to draft-when to lead
Clinic Cost: $125
Pre-Registration ONLY at Bike Reg.
Full clinic is limited to 10 riders in order to provide each athlete with sufficient attention and support to encourage growth.
