Sven Nys and Sven Vanthourenhout are back for their third-annual cyclocross clinic hosted by Chicago’s xXxRacing-Athletico. Learn more about this chance to learn from the two legends this September in this release.
For the third year in a row, Chicago’s xXx Racing-Athletico is partnering with cyclocross legends Sven Nys and Sven Vanthourenhout to provide two one-day cyclocross clinics benefitting the Pieter Ombregt Scholarship Fund.
The two clinics will be held in the Windy City on Saturday, September 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, September 16 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Caldwell Woods. The Sunday clinic is after the Caldwell Woods Chicago Cross Cup cyclocross race, so it provides a great opportunity for new racers to learn from the two legends after their races.
The two Svens bring a combined 40 years of cyclocross experience to their teaching experience. The clinic will use the varied terrain of the Caldwell Woods course, and the two Svens will use a structured curriculum to teach techniques to tackle the discipline’s many challenges. Sven and Sven will also provide a discussion of bike setup and maintenance.
Spots for the 2018 Sven-Nado clinic are limited to help maintain a coach-rider ratio that provides all participants with an opportunity for hands-on instruction.
Sven Nys and Sven Vanthourenhout are two of the greatest names in cyclocross history and the current coaches of the Telenet Fidea Lions Professional Team and the Belgian National Cyclocross Team, respectively. With a combined 5 World Championships, 11 World Championship medals and 24 Belgian National Championships, the experience the Svens bring to this cyclocross clinic is unlike any other available. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from the greatest that has previously only been available at the Sven Nys Cycling Center located in Tremelo, Belgium.
