Calling all ladies who want to shred! Come learn how to ride and race cyclocross like a boss and perfect your skills with coach and elite racer Peter Glassford and coach and author Molly Hurford.
When: 10AM to 1PM on August 28, 2016
Where: Bennett’s Creek Park in Suffolk, VA * directions below
What: A 2-hour skills clinic covering the basics of cyclocross, from corners to barriers plus race-specific skills like starts, followed by a 1-hour chat about women-specific needs, cyclocross specific-training and racing, ride and race nutrition and any training questions that you might have. And, of course, we’ll have plenty of time for Q&A! (Bonus: samples from Skratch Labs, Cats Tongue Towels, Bicycling mag and more will be provided!)
Who: Presented by the ladies from Rogue Velo Racing, and open to women locally from Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, and Richmond. We’re limiting it to the first 25 to register, so fill out the form below ASAP! All skill levels are welcome. We’ll focus on the basics, but we’ve found that intermediate and advanced riders can benefit from a refresher course in skills, especially if you’re new to cyclocross racing specifically.
Cost: $50 per person (cash, check of credit card day-of). YOU MUST PREREGISTER BEFORE AUGUST 20
Your coaches: Peter Glassford, head of Smart Athlete coaching, has been coaching beginners to elites for the past decade, and racing his mountain bike and cyclocross bike even longer. His approach is to master skills first, and with that as a starting point, you’ll crush your ride—and have more fun! Molly Hurford has been writing about bikes for the past 10 years as well as riding and racing them, as well as coaching cycling clinics and camps. Her books include “Mud, Snow and Cyclocross,” “Saddle, Sore: A Women-Only Guide to You and Your Bike,” and “Fuel Your Ride.” Whether you have a question about the history of cyclocross, why your chamois is chafing you lady parts, or when to eat a meal pre-ride, she has you covered.
