Pittsburgh’s Chris Mayhew has been a regular as our resident coach here at Cyclocross Magazine for several years now, and on Sunday, ’cross racers in the Steel City and its surrounds have the chance to learn from Mayhew in person.
Mayhew and JBV Coaching are hosting the “umpteenth” annual Pittsburgh Cyclocross Clinic this Sunday, September 8 at Frick Park on the city’s east side. The clinic starts at 9 a.m. and is a relatively affordable $20 to attend.
With the clinic held one week before the start of the WPCX series, it is the perfect chance for riders of all levels to get ready for the coming season. The clinic will cover basics such as barriers, starts and cornering and also include instruction on course inspection and everyone’s favorite, tire pressure.
Riders of all skill levels are welcome to attend, and Mayhew plans on providing useful information for everyone.
You do not need a ’cross bike for this event. All you need are shoes you can do a little running in and a good attitude. So bring whatever bike you have! On the flip side, even if you show up in a skinsuit with tubulars, I think you can learn a lot too. Whatever level you’re at, you’re going to get your $20 out of this clinic, at least.
