    DC-ChiX CX clinic @ DCCX

    DCCX is rolling out the welcome mat for women racers with a special DC-ChiX clinic.

    Washington, D.C.'s only cyclocross race is already offering an equal payout for elite women and men, with a $1,000 purse going 10 deep. The Cat 1,2,3 Women's race is sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

    Now female crossers can bone up on their skills the day before.

    Hub Racing's Arley Kemmerer, the 2009 Ed Sander elite winner, will host a free clinic for women racers on Oct. 24 at 2pm. The clinic takes place on the Armed Forces Retirement Home -- on the DCCX course. This will give those women signed up to race on Sunday a chance to go over the course in advance with a seasoned pro.

    Topics for the 90-minute women's clinic will include mounting/dismounting, cornering, line selection and starts. Plus a chance to preview the DCCX course.

    Any woman who is registered to race can sign up for the clinic at no extra cost. To participate, you must first pre-register for DCCX and then send an email to DCMTB Clinic. The clinic is free, but riders must email to the address above in advance in order to be able to get on the grounds for the event.
