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 April 25 clinic will utilize the smooth pavement and sweeping turns at Woody Creek’s Aspen Motorsports Park to focus on increasing group-riding comfort level. Skills covered will include:
- Riding closely and safely
- Strategies for avoiding and getting out of bad situations
- Pace line techniques
- Environmental challenges (e.g., wind, changes in road direction, cornering, etc.)
- Speed control within a group
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.
