In what has become a can’t miss annual event, U.S. pro cyclocrosser Jeremy Powers (Rapha/Focus) will once again join forces with JBV Coaching and Fulcrum Coaching in a full day cyclocross boot camp. Building on the overwhelming success of the last two years, this one-day cyclocross indoctrination—sponsored by the Bike Doctor of Waldorf—is the perfect way to kick off a successful 2011 ‘cross campaign. Ideal for new and experienced cyclocross racers, Jeremy and a staff of four top-notch instructors will give you the inside scoop on everything you need to know to step up your game.
The 2011 event kicks off September 3 at 7 p.m. with a free Jeremy Powers Meet & Greet and Q&A at the Bike Doctor of Waldorf. The clinic takes place the next day, September 4th, at Rosaryville State Park in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. A short drive from Washington, D.C., and the site of MABRAcross’ Tacchino Ciclocross, Rosaryville’s varied terrain gives clinic participants the opportunity to learn and hone their skills on most surfaces found in East Coast cyclocross racing.
Attendees can look forward to a jam-packed day of technique, tactics and skills, as well as one-on-one instruction from JPow and professional coaches. “Everyone learns something which is my number one goal with this camp,” Powers said after last year’s clinic. “The coaches make our best effort to get everyone nailing the techniques the correct way,” he added. “We hit on the fundamentals of cyclocross so all participants have the tools to get a result in their upcoming races.”
This clinic is designed to help the beginner and accomplished cyclocross racer. With four coaches in addition to Jeremy, every attendee will receive individual instruction tailored to improve their technique, tactics and training. Participants will be divided into groups by experience so beginners are not left behind and experienced racers are constantly challenged to improve their skill set. All coaches, including Jeremy, will work with each group several times as the day progresses.
Where most clinics give you a couple hours or a half-day of instruction, the Fulcrum Coaching and JBV Coaching clinic goes all out. Not only do you receive a full day of instruction on all facets of ‘cross racing, a Chipotle lunch, and an end-of-the-day mock race to put all your new skills into practice, but you also get the opportunity to pick Jeremy’s brain at the Friday night ‘cross talk session at The Bike Doctor in Waldorf, Maryland.
Friday night’s cross talk event at The Bike Doctor of Waldorf is 7 to 9:30 p.m. Although the cross talk event is free, you still need to register to attend. Saturday’s clinic at Rosaryville State Park will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
