Women’s Road Racing Clinic and Optional Starter Races – Pacific Raceways
Women's Road Racing Clinic and Optional Starter Races - Pacific Raceway
Have you ever wanted to try racing your bike? Or maybe you have raced already, and would love to hone your skills?
Join other female cyclists for a one day clinic focused on road-racing skills with simulation racing clinic and th e(optional) chance to put everything into practice immediately with sanctioned racing!
Team Group Health is delighted to once again partner with other leading NW cycling teams to offer a coached clinic for women who are thinking about road racing and want to learn – or improve on – the necessary skills to race effectively and safely. No previous race experience is needed – this clinic provides an opportunity for new racers to learn what it takes to race on the road. Experienced Cat 4 and Cat 3 women are also encouraged to attend and brush up on skills plus learn some new ones.
The clinic will be held at the Pacific Raceways race track – we rent out the track for the day so that you can learn in a safe, controlled environment without cars in your way. The clinic focuses on a variety of road racing skills – cornering, sprinting, pack riding & pacelining – along with guidance on how to structure a race warm-up and the opportunity to do some simulated racing so that you get a feel for the experience.
New this year: season starter races for Category 3, 4 and 5 women
New this year, there will be the opportunity to put those skills into practice and start earning category upgrade points immediately, with USA Cycling sanctioned racing on the closed Pacific Raceways track that very same afternoon! Racing will be separated by category so that you can race with others of similar ability and experience
Clinic and Racing for Cat 4/5 Men
Also new this year we are delighted to also offer the opportunity for Cat 4/5 men to race as part of the Seattle Beginner Racing Program following the conclusion of the women’s clinic and races (see www.cycleu.com for more details)
*Note: Racing is available to all Cat 3, 4, 5 women and to Cat 4/5 men regardless of clinic participation.
