Women's racing clinic (4/6/08 -- Madison)
Got this today from Wisconsin Sports Development Corp.(they run the Badger State Games) for a women's Crit/RR clinic this weekend. Don't know if it may be of interest to any of the female users here:
Whether you are just thinking about trying bike racing and would like to learn more, or if you are a current racer wanting to develop your skills and strategy, this will be a great learning opportunity. Kristin Wentworth and Monique Karlen of Team Kenda Tire, Rachel Eichers of ISCorp along with other experienced women racers, will share knowledge and experience to give you the confidence to try your first race or help you work on areas you would like to improve. We will start with a classroom portion and then later work on practical skills on our bikes, and finish with our own practice crit, for those who would like to try.
When: Sunday, April 6th
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Where: HospiceCare, Inc. 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Madison WI
Located two miles south of the Beltline (Hwy. 12/18) off Fish Hatchery Road. Turn left onto East Cheryl Parkway at the "Fitchburg Center" sign and proceed approximately 3/4 mile. HospiceCare is on the right side of the street. Click here for a map.
