Altius Cyclocross Practice Sessions
Altius invites you to join the weekly CX practice sessions, at Gillies Creek Park in Richmond from 5:45-7:00 pm. The practices are open to everyone.
To avoid the time change and needing lighting, practice sessions will take place on three (3) Thursdays in August (15, 22, and 29) and three Tuesdays in September (10, 17, 24) and October (1, 8, 15).
The training will be structured to include:
– Flat Cornering
– Barriers/Suitcase Lifts
– Off-Camber riding and turns
– Right Side Dismount/Remount
Please remember that most CX races happen in public parks and the loss of one venue could mean the loss of all! We will NOT use the park if there is rain. It’s bad for the grass, and it’s bad for our image. Please use good judgment when practicing on your own in any public park, and vary your “course” to avoid wearing a pattern into the grass. Also, going fast can be fun, but you have to be conscious of all park users – so be courteous, slow down, stop, or re-route for pedestrians, dogs, children, squirrels, and soccer balls. this is about working on technique and not for intervals, speed work, or pacelining – save that for the road and the trainer.
