August 29th – September 26th will be a five week training series held at Ski Ward in Shrewsbury to help bust that rust off your CX skills and to introduce new CX racers to some of the techniques.

Starting at 5:15pm there will be at least 3 – 20 minute practice races with about 10-15 minutes in between and will run until dark.  So if you can’t make the first one don’t stress, you can hop in the next one. Winners of each heat wins a $10 ski ward gift card, good for a Wednesday night burger and beer special after the racing is done.  Limit one gift card per night per person

There will be barriers, run ups, tight turns and race scenarios – Starts – Clipping in your pedals straight to sprinting for the holeshot.

If you are new to cyclocross this will be a good way to get use to racing in a relaxed training atmosphere before jumping in to your first race.

If you already have experience in racing cross this will be a good way to brush up on skills and have a mid week training race.

After the races stay for french fries, burgers, and beers ( 21+) at the Ski Ward lodge.
