Description: Join Coach Dean Hill of Aspen Pro Cycling and other veteran racers from the Aspen Cycling Club for an evening of fun and accessible road racing skills and drills! Geared toward beginner and intermediate road racers, the May 1 clinic will utilize the smooth pavement and sweeping turns at Woody Creek’s Aspen Motorsports Park to focus on increasing bike-handling skills. Skills covered will include:
- Hand and body positions, including riding, braking, and racing in the drops
- Braking techniques and postures
- Cornering drills, focusing on line, radius, entry/exit speed, and braking
- Dealing with irregular road surfaces such as gravel, road debris, and wet/dry road conditions
- Learning how to sprint and climb out of the saddle
Cancellation policy: PLEASE DO NOT PHONE OR TEXT THE RACE DIRECTOR FOR RACE CANCELLATION INFORMATION. In the event of inclement weather on race day, the Aspen Cycling Club Board of Directors will communicate with the Race Director to determine the Club’s ability to operate a race that is reasonably safe for competitors, and, for mountain bike races, preserves the integrity of local trails. All racers should assume that a final decision will be made at the start line by the race director. However, when possible, the Board of Directors will alert racers of a race cancellation prior to the start by emailing the Club email group, and posting on the website and the ACC Facebook page by 5pm.
