I did IT! USA Cycling Skills Instructor!

Sorry it took me so long to post this note about the last day of my USA Cycling CSI clinic.
I stated a new position at 24 Hour Fitness 12075 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, KS 66213

So I have been a bit busy this week.
I am still training and so should you with temperatures we have had this week.
Here are a few photos of some of the people attending the clinic.
The photo to the left we are doing a wheel touching drill.
The idea is not to have this happen but this type of incident can happen on the slowest and low key rides you may attend. The local group ride, charity ride or race. 
The photo to the left is me demonstrating the hip action in preparation for an obstacle avoidance skill.

It is raining out can you tell! We are doing a turning drill down a coned course. We added four more people to the line and it was much fun!

Here we are receiving instruction on a drill. Notice if you had not already we are in a parking garage! Yes rain was a bit more than we would have liked and the temps where not favorable. We did have fun.

I had a great time working with a group of talented coaches and I did leave this clinic as a Certified USA Cycling Skills Instructor. I feel privileged to hold this designation. The bar was set high and Power Team Coaching reached it.
Please look at the side bar videos for a demonstration on the reaction a bike takes with just a slight push, also a cornering skill that can be used in wet conditions, gravel or other non perfect corners.

Until the next time or I see you in the Peloton.
