There is little doubt the Cyclocross is an extremely popular discipline in the Kansas City area. For several years the folks from Source Endurance, a national coaching service have been offering first class instruction at an early season clinic.
This year the The Source Endurance CX clinic will be held at Herman Laird Park in Shawnee. The park has been a featured venue for cyclocross racing events including Grote Prijs Shawnee, 'Cross Off The Old Year and Boulevard Cup.
This edition, instructors include elite level CX racers Cody Kaiser, Shadd Smith, Tom Price, and coach Grant Harrison. The sessions will be divided into Introductory and Adavnace sections.
Beginning riders can learn the fundamentals of mounting and dismounting, carrying the bike, and what to expect on a 'cross course. Advanced riders will focus on skills to optimize their race day.
Things kick off with a Meet and Greet on Friday August 21. The clinics are offered on Saturday August 22nd.
