Renegade Cyclocross Practices are held AT YOUR OWN RISK! We do ask you sign a waiver at your first practice.
This will be a training race, bike practice, or whatever else you kids want to call it. No entry fees, no prizes, no official results. Please understand the word "race" is used loosely.
What it WILL be is a great opportunity to get some intensity in, practice barriers, run-ups and other cyclocross skills and ride against guys of varying abilities. This makes it a GREAT chance for newer riders to gain some confidence and have some fun
, while the experienced guys get a good workout and pass on some knowledge. Above all, it's a good reason to ride cross bikes with friends. Cool?
This IS the place to learn! Find out more about Cyclocross, the courses, and the bike set-up at Cyclocross 101
