Ladies, Try Cross with nycross!!!

This year Elite Cross Racer Rhys Niesen will be teaching a holistic clinic for Women and Junior Girls  at each of the five NYCROSS Series Races.  

  • The clinic will be free to all women and junior girls signed up for a race that day.
  • Loaner bikes will be available thanks to the Jaybird Fleet from Bike Loft East so even if you don't have a cross bike you can try it out. A limited number of bikes will be available on a first come, first served basis so sign up early!
  • Clinic will start at 9:30 am.  Riders will be instructed on important cross techniques and skills for approximately 1.5 hours, with an eye towards preparing them to race the course that day.  Rhys will lead the group on pre-laps of the course and discuss tricky details like tire pressure and tread patterns, specific techniques for different parts of each course, race strategies and whatever other questions the racers have. 
  • Then all the women will get their chance to race the 4/5 Women's race or U19 Girls race.  Rhys will watch everyone race and follow up with a cool down/info download session to discuss what worked  during the race, what didn't, and how to improve for the next race.
