This last weekend I had the honor of being one of the coaches at the BRAC women's Cyclocross clinic. Some of the women had a bit of CX experience but we had many newbies. I find it very inspiring and exciting to be around people new to this sport. It's easy to forget how fun, and intimidating, your first few seasons can be. I love to feed off their excitement and get back to the basics of really enjoying the awesome cx community.
We spent the day working on dismount/remounts, cornering, starts, barriers, riding off-camber and even a bit of curb hoping! The day ended with a quick mock race to practice some of the new skills and happy hour!
As an added bonus, many of the women were out at the Rhyolite race the very next day!
Thanks to Dierdre Moynihan, Tracy Yates, Colin Yates, Lynn Bush, Rebecca Gross, Kim Nordquist, Dierdre Garvey and Kimberly Nuffer for having me!
