Cycling BC will be offering a Learn to Race Clinic to help prepare you for the steep, gnarly BC Cup #4 DH…
When is it?
The clinic will be held over 2 days:
Friday June 18th; from 6:30 pm to 8 pm “ish”
Saturday June 19th; from 9 am to 1:30 “ish” pm.
Who is it for?
The clinic will be open to Arduum entrants ages 15 and 16 who are new to the sport of downhill racing and/or those that have not raced Arduum before. The course is tough, so the emphasis will be on achieving a safe and clean race run.
How will the clinic work?
Friday session is on-foot only. You will be walking the course to pick lines, analyze technical features & discuss race strategies.
Saturday is on-bike. After meeting and going through registration, you will take the race shuttles and ride the course 3-4 times with your instructor.
Where do I go?
Friday night, meet at Mill Pond- site of the Bear Mtn Race, and across from the Mission Rod & Gun Club- 10969 Dewdney Trunk Rd, Mission, BC. Saturday come a bit early to sign-in and get your plate. Meet the rest of the gang and your coaches at the finish line of the DH at 9 am (just behind the registration area).
Fee? $79 per rider which includes both sessions.
Who’s my coach? Chad Hendren and Mark Bunyan of Mad March Racing.
