This course involves in-class and on-track instruction. Only participants who have track experience at the Milton Velodrome or at Forest City Velodrome will be allowed to ride the track, all others will perform coaching exercises from the apron. Athletes planning to ride the track must wear a helmet. Some rental bikes can be available (must provide notice ahead of the workshop).
Description: Ready to Race! Introduction to Competition (R2R) is the context for coaches who will primarily work with new competitive cyclists at the community and club level. These athletes will likely be in the Learn to Train to Train to Train stages of LTAD, although the context could apply to any new racer of any age. These athletes have basic but developed cycling skills and the desire to begin competing within a structured training and competition program. They should have passed through an entry-level Community Initiation program (CCI) to help them develop the basic skills.
Registration Closes: March 25, 2018
