Learn to hop barriers the right way.
Imagine taking a football throwing class taught by Tom Brady or learning the finer points of dunking a basketball courtesy of LeBron James. Sounds awesome — but probably pretty expensive. Well, for aspiring cyclocross aficionados, a similar opportunity exists — and at a shade under $500 it doesn’t seem like such a bad deal.
The class in question is FasCat Coaching’s fourth annual cyclocross camp, slated for August 23-25 at Boulder, Colorado’s Valmont Bike Park, site of this season’s U.S. national championships. Lead instructor: 2012 U.S. national champion Jeremy Powers.
Powers and a group of other coaches (including 2000 world downhill champion Myles Rockwell) will work with you for two and half days, covering dismounting, remounting, cornering, bike fit, set-up, and more.
If you want to go a little deeper, the FasCat camp also offers physiological testing so you can determine your functional threshold power, a key element of power-based training.
Other coaches at the camp include John Verheul (who has coached the likes of Powers, Danny Summerhill and Marc Gullickson), and FasCat founder Frank Overton, who’s been a full time coach since 2004 and a USA Cycling Level 1 coach since 2006.
