Saturday, April 20th – Cross Wind Clinic

I’m not talking about a ride leaving from Crosswinds Mall, I’m talking about how to ride and race in the wind. Cross winds create unique challenges and opportunities during a ride or race.  
 
The Clinic will begin in Stony Creek Metro Park at 2:00pm.  We will meet in the building located at the boat launch and spend 20-30 mins talking and then ride.
 
This ride will is primarily designed to train the space between  your ears,  training  your legs and  aerobic system will be secondary priority.  There may be stopping  to explain things and/or yell at you like a grouch old bike racer does. 
 
Topics we’ll cover include…
 
o   Knowing which way the apparent wind is coming from 
o   Knowing which way to pull off
o   How to avoid getting “spit out” in a crosswind
o   How to ride in an Echelon
o   What the doorman in the echelon does and  how he can make your ride tolerable or miserable
o   What side of the road/wind to attack on
o   How a team can split the field in a cross wind
 
I encourage all those racing this season or interested in racing attend.
