Cyclocross Skills Clinic Saturday August 25, 2012

On Saturday, August 25, Team welcomes you to the 2012 NYCROSS cyclocross skills clinic. Our six hour program is oriented toward beginner and intermediate crossers but is also a good resource for experienced road racers venturing into a new specialty.

Instruction will be provided by experienced members of Team NYCROSS. Riders will be divided into groups and will rotate through a series of presentations on cyclocross techniques such as dismounting/remounting, shouldering/carrying, barriers, cornering. At the end of the day, participants will test out their new knowledge on a marked course.

On-site tech support: provided by High Adventure Ski & Bike,

Clothing & equipment: Helmet required. Bib shorts recommended – don’t wear anything that might snag on the back of your saddle during a remount. If you don’t have a cross bike available, a mountain bike will get it done. If you are putting cross tires on a road bike, be sure to have mtb pedals & shoes.

Licenses: participants must present a current USAC license or purchase a $5 non-competitive license on site.

Directions: Troy Prospect Park is located at 65 Prospect Park Road, Troy, NY 12180.
It is the traditional venue for the NYCROSS Uncle Sam cyclocross race, October 13 & 14.

The program will begin at 9:00 a.m. Please arrive early to attend to registration, etc.
