UNDER-12 CYCLO-CROSS SESSIONS – BEGINNING 22 AUGUST
Under 12 cyclo-cross training returns on Tuesday 22nd August, on the grass area at Brooksbank circuit. Riders should be prepared to ride on the grass, which will turn to mud as the season progresses, with cyclo-cross or mountain bike, gloves and suitable clothing. Lights (front and rear) will also be required as the days get shorter. The session is designed to build riders’ fitness and skills off road using a simulated cyclo-cross course. It is hard work and riders need to be ready to work hard and listen to the coaches! Riders are eligible based on which Saturday Go-Ride group they are in:
• 9am Race or Advanced group – open invitation to all riders
• 10am Intermediate “top” group (normally led by Wingy) – open invitation to all riders
• 10am Intermediate “bottom” group – only riders regularly participating in Yorkshire cyclo-cross races (please discuss with Keith or Wingy before turning up)
If unsure about eligibility please ask BEFORE attending – these sessions can be demanding and riders’ safety and enjoyment is the most important thing!
Session run from 7-8pm, cost is £2.50 as normal. To ensure sessions can run, can we ask parents of riders please help to set up and pack away the equipment for each session, to reduce the burden on the coaches – this also allows the coaches to spend more time coaching riders!!
