Black Bob Cyclocross Clinic

It is that time of year to get yourself ready for my favorite bicycle racing discipline, Cyclocross.
With the Kansas race calendar, bordering states flock to events and other cycling events throughout the months it is becoming harder to hold clinics on weekend. This year I am hosting a two day mid-week CX clinic, August 20th and 27th. Back to my training ground Black Bob Park in Olathe with a few new features I am putting together for added challenge and skill learning. Get yourself ready for the CX season and go to a skills clinic. If your goals in CX are wanting to get closer to the podium skills and drills will help you more than overall fitness. Not that fitness is not part of it. If you and I are of the same fitness level and I can go around corners, hope barriers and get back up to speed faster who is in the front? July and I start my skills and drills now following a good MTB season so I can stay close to the front.
Come see what it is all about. The Black Bob clinic is limited per request of the Olathe Parks and Recreation so get registered now before time runs out.

Skills, Drills and more Skills and Drills

Success is not determined with the winning of a race for all. Some of us Success is accomplishing something we have never tried before. That is what happened this year and at every skills clinic I have taught. Not that I am the best teacher but with the correct tools and state of mind with proper encouragement you! will and can be successful. What some will think is so simple others find frighting. Take for instance all you bike riders, drinking from our water bottle, standing out of the saddle or just riding in close proximity to another rider. It takes skill and self confidence to do all of these things. One this past weekend did all of these things and more. How cool is that!
Here are a few shots of the clinic. I will be hosting more in 2015 so be on the lookout. The clinics are even for you experienced riders who want to be a BETTER cyclist and it will make you better.


What is next for Power Team Coaching! Cyclocross season and more clinics
See you on the Bicycle.
