The Capital Bicycle Racing Club (CBRC) announces a Bicycle Racing Clinic, Saturday July 6, 2013.
This clinic is designed for the entry level or intermediate level competitor or the club rider who wants to get serious about bicycle racing. The goal of this clinic is to help any rider be more competitive when racing, to have a basic understanding of USAC rules of bicycle racing, to be more comfortable in a race environment, and to ultimately be a safer rider.
The clinic will include on-the-bike skills training covering topics such as bike handling, cornering, pack riding, pace lines, and team tactics. Both on-the-bike and in-classroom instruction will be provided.
The clinic will be a minimum of 4 hours of combined classroom and on the road training. Note: Attendees successfully completing the clinic can receive 2 race day credits to upgrade from a Category 5 to a Category 4, or two upgrade points for Cat 4 racers wishing to upgrade to Cat 3.
About the Instructors: The clinic will be led by M. Andrew Ruiz, a USAC certified coach, a member of Training Peaks Coaching Edition, Vice President of CBRC, and member of the CCC/Keltic Racing Team. Andy is a well known racer with 30+ years of bicycle racing experience. USAC rules will be presented by Gary Toth, a USAC Road and Track National Commissaire with 30+ years of racing and officiating experience. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from the masters of the sport.
