Cyclocross requires good fitness, great skills and consistent race preparation. Join our clinic and learn how to improve your cross skills and race readiness. We keep our rider/coach ratios small to ensure individual attention so that skills can be taught and practiced to meet individual and group needs.

Is This Clinic For You?:
Adult men and women. All levels welcome. We will tailor to your ability level.
Cyclocross and/or mountain bikes (without bar ends). Be sure to come dressed to ride for all weather. Bring food and water for 2 hours of riding. Expect hot, dry conditions at PIR in August. But, there will be a mud pit!
Helmets are mandatory – they must be in good condition and fit appropriately.
This is held outside of the track in the West End of PIR. It is not in the infield where Short Track is, nor is in on the track where the road bikes race. Parking is also outside of the track in the West End along the fence. Entrance to PIR and parking is free.
The clinics will be held rain or shine…this is cyclocross!
Enter at the main entrance of PIR. Once you reach the track/infield keep going on the paved road. Keep the fence and track on your right. Pavement turns into gravel. You’ll next see a pond to your left. Shortly thereafter is the parking area on the grass.
