RSVP Now: Ridley and Telenet Fidea Pros to Host Free Cyclocross Clinic at Cross Vegas
Dream of riding like a Belgian cyclocross pro? Two Belgian cyclocross powers have joined forces to host a free cyclocross clinic at the CrossVegas course on race day. Full press release below.
Join Ridley Bikes and the Telenet Fidea Cycling Team for a cyclocross clinic on the same course that will be raced by the Elite women and men a few hours later. It all happens Wednesday September 10th from 3:00 to 4:00 pm at Desert Breeze Soccer Complex in Las Vegas.

Telenet Fidea Cycling Team pros Thijs Van Amerongen, Quinten Hermans and Daan Soete will share some of their cross secrets in a fun way. Expect to practice dismounts, running up the stairs while shouldering a bike and maybe some tactics to use while racing. All on the world-famous CrossVegas course.
“With the Ridley sponsored Telenet-Fidea team coming over for CrossVegas it seemed natural to give U.S. cross racers a chance to learn from the best,” commented Richard Wittenberg of Ridley Bikes, “the guys are really looking forward to meeting American racers and sharing some tips on the course they’ll be racing later in the evening.”
Participants can expect to be divided into smaller groups based on skill level: beginner, intermediate or experienced. The Telenet Fidea guys will work with each group to learn some new skills or maybe fine-tune some existing skills. Since it’s early season it a great way to kick-start cross skills that may have gotten rusty over the summer.
And for those racing later in the day in the CrossVegas USA Cycling or Wheelers & Dealers race it’s a prefect way to prepare.
Participants can check out the complete line of 2015 Ridley cyclocross bikes on display, and see Cyclocross Magazine’s part one of the 2015 Ridley cyclocross line here.
