Joachim Parbo kicks off his annual U.S. cyclocross campaign with StarCrossed this weekend, but will expand his presence to the Bay Area later this month and teach folks how to train and race cyclocross the Danish way. Press release details below.

TRP Brakes, in conjunction with  Leopard Bikes, Cyclocross Magazine and Challenge Tires, is pleased to present a skills clinic with Joachim Parbo on Tuesday Sept. 28th from 5:30 – 7:00p. We’ll meet at Palo Alto Baylands park at the intersection of Embarcadero Road and Embarcadero Way (T-intersection) for a 90-minute barrage of ’cross.  Joachim is a four-time Danish National Cyclocross Champion and is ranked in the UCI top 50. He will offer his experience and insights into classic techniques like mounts, dismounts, off camber corners, sand and more.  Mixed with personal feedback for each rider, training and racing advice, this  is sure to  provide a well-rounded experience no matter your level.

After the clinic, join us at Sunnyvale Sports Basement on Lawrence Expressway for an informal PowerPoint presentation on Training and Racing Cyclocross by Joachim Parbo and USAC Level 1 coach Matt McNamara. This 60-minute presentation will highlight some of the training, technique and tactical elements that should be a part of your race planning, as well as anecdotes from Joachim and his World Cup experiences. This event is free and open to all! If you can’t make the clinic, stop by the presentation. We’ll have giveaways and drawing from Cyclocross Magazine, Leopard, TRP, Challenge and more. ’Cross clinic participants will get an extra entry in the drawing, so increase your odds by doing both!
