NCCP Introduction to Competition – Training2Race @ Milton Velodrome

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.

Training2Race is the a 2-day in-class workshop.  Participants should have completed the Introduction to Competition- Training Basics course prior to registering.  Please contact michael.suraci@ontariocycling.org if you have questions regarding this requirement.
