Two Belgian cycloross heavyweights have joined forces to bring a cyclocross clinic to the CrossVegas course on race day. Join Ridley Bikes and the Telenet Fidea Cycling Team for a cyclocross cross clinic on the same course that will be raced by the elite women and men a few hours later. It all happens Wednesday September 10th from 3:00 to 4:00 pm at Desert Breeze Soccer Complex in Las Vegas.
Telenet Fidea Cycling Team pros Thijs Van Amerongen, Quinten Hermans and Daan Soete will share some of their cross secrets in a fun way. Expect to practise dismounts, running up the stairs while shouldering your bike and maybe some tactics you can use in your racing. All on the world famous CrossVegas course.
What do you need to bring? Your cyclocross bike of course. You should wear riding shorts and jersey as well as proper shoes like MTB shoes. It will be hot so bring water to drink.
You can expect to be divided into smaller groups based on your skill level: beginner, intermediate or experienced. The Telenet Fidea guys will work with each group to learn some new skills or maybe fine-tune some skills you already have. Since it's early season it a great way to kick-start your cross skills that may have got rusty over the summer.
Don't worry if you're racing later in the day in the CrossVegas USA Cycling or Wheelers & Dealers race. If you stay hydrated you won't be too tired to race.
While you're there you can check out the complete line of Ridley cyclocross bikes on display.
