This clinic is aimed at the competitive-minded bike rider who would like to give bicycle racing a try, wants to be more competitive on tour rides, group rides, or simply wants to step up the riding game.
We will cover the basics of riding, as well as training for racing, specific skills needed to navigate the peloton effectively and efficiently, and the special skills needed for the different road race disciplines – Road Race, Time Trial, Criterium, and Cyclocross.
Recently, I was working with a team of riders who where preparing for an important local race. As I was writing a pep-talk e-mail, I decided to remind them of all the things that we have been learning the hard way, that we all really already knew but were not putting into practice.
These things seem like common sense when you are standing on the sidelines, but sometimes do not even come to mind in the heat of the racing action.more
