Looking to enter your first mountain bike race? Or are you interested in improving your race time and maybe earn a podium spot?
This spring and summer, CORBA will be hosting two mountain bike racing clinics at Lowes Creek County Park in Eau Claire. The clinics will cover a variety of topics, including training, pre-race prep, equipment prep, nutrition, etiquette, bike handling skills and strategy. Ride portions of the clinics will include sections of the 2013 WORS Firecracker course.
USA Cycling-licensed coach and WORS racer Eric Johnson will lead the clinics. Eric lives here in Eau Claire and, in addition to being a coach and racer, is an expert bike mechanic and CORBA member.
“I’d like to help out the local riders and racers,” Eric says. “I hope we can get a great local showing at the Firecracker.”
The clinics will be free-of-charge to all that attend. Pre-registration is requested but not required. All ages and skill levels are welcome.
Bring your bike, helmet and questions, and be ready for a great time. Watch here and on our Facebook page for more details.
