Fulcrum Coaching and JBV Coaching are stoked to announce that US pro cyclocrosser Jeremy Powers will once again share his years of racing experience at their annual cyclocross clinic. Building on the overwhelming success of last year’s clinic, this one-day cyclocross boot camp — sponsored by Swiftwick socks, Cannondale bicycles, and the Bike Doctor of Waldorf — is the perfect way to kick off a successful 2010 ’cross campaign. Ideal for beginner and experienced ’crossers, Jeremy and a staff of four top-notch instructors will give you the inside scoop on everything you need to know to step up your CX game.

This year’s clinic will be held August 28 at Rosaryville State Park in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. A short drive from Washington, D.C., and the site of last year’s Tacchino Ciclocross, Rosaryville’s varied terrain gives clinic participants the opportunity to learn and hone their skills on several surfaces including ’cross-friendly single-track mountain-bike trails.

In addition to a full day of learning technique, tactics and skills, attendees will also benefit from hands on instruction from JPow and professional coaches. “Everyone learned something, which was my number one goal with this camp,” Powers said after last year’s clinic. “The other coaches and I really made our best effort to get everyone nailing the techniques the correct way,” he added. “We hit on the fundamentals of cyclocross so all the participants had the tools to get a result in their upcoming competitions.”

Where most clinics give you a couple hours or a half-day of instruction, the Fulcrum Coaching and JBV Coaching clinic goes all out. Not only do you receive a full day of instruction on all facets of ’cross racing, a Chipotle lunch and an end-of-the-day mock race to put all your new skills into practice, but you also get the opportunity to pick Jeremy’s brain at a Friday night ’cross talk session at The Bike Doctor of Waldorf, Maryland.

Along with getting the chance to talk up JPow, the ’cross talk event is a great opportunity to take home great swag from Swiftwick and The Bike Doctor, and a new cyclocross bike frame from Cannondale Bicycles.

This clinic is designed to help the beginner and accomplished cyclocross racer. With four coaches in addition to Jeremy, every attendee will receive one-on-one instruction tailored to improve their technique, tactics and training. Participants will be divided into groups by experience so beginners are not left behind and experienced racers are constantly challenged to improve their skill set. All coaches, including Jeremy, will work with each group several times as the day progresses.

Friday night’s ’cross talk will take place at The Bike Doctor of Waldorf from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday’s clinic at Rosaryville State Park will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
