Looking for a clinic to brush up on your skills? We talked about what goes into a clinic last week and how to hold your own offseason training sessions, but learning from the professionals is always fun and informative.
From Fix Studio and Lazer Sports:
The Fix Studio and Lazer Sport are excited to announce a weekend cyclocross camp with current US National Champion Jonathan Page. This is not just a skills and drills clinic, but rather an exhaustive cyclocross-learning experience with 12 hours of on-the-bike learning scheduled over the weekend. The first evening is devoted to a reception and questions and answers with Page. The remaining evenings offer the opportunity to review video with Page’s guidance. Since cyclocross is not just skills, participants will also learn about cyclocross-specific training, bike cleaning and maintenance, and methods for increasing recovery between workouts and races. In short, the weekend is an opportunity for Page to share everything he knows about cyclocross and for you to jump-start your cyclocross season!
New to the cyclocross scene? Page’s long and storied cyclocross career has seen him achieve more than any other American professional cyclocross rider in history. He burst on the scene in 2003, winning the national championships, a feat he repeated in 2004, 2005, and most recently in 2013. In 2007, he became the only American man ever to stand on a Cyclocross World Championships podium, taking 2nd in Hooglede-Gits, Belgium. This past season, he was the only American man to score a top-15 in a World Cup (15th in Namur). Totally committed to succeeding in international cyclocross, Page is partially based in Belgium, the epicenter of cyclocross. One of few American riders to embrace living abroad and racing week after week with the world’s best, he has knowledge of world-class cyclocross like few Americans.
Page will be supported by USA Cycling certified coaches Larry Foss and Chris Smith, both of whom hold USA Cycling cyclocross-specific coaching certification.
