Hi Everybody,

We will be starting cyclocross practices at Badger Prairie on Aug 16th!  Hosted by Isaac Neff, 2x cyclocross national champ and owner of Neff Cycle Service.  This year there will be something for everyone. Show up for all three parts of practice or only one, up to you. 

Any bike with knobby tires is welcome: fat bike, mtb, hybrid (does anyone eve ride these anymore?), "commuter", etc.  E-bikes are OK with the power turned off.

Each evening:
5:15-6pm: Clinic portion of practice – each week will have a topic designed to cover and master the basics of cyclocross.
During the clinic portion of practice people are also free to practice barriers, dismounts, etc on their own as well. However, for those looking for instruction, this will be time to receive that help.
6:00-6:30: Practice start
6:30-7:30: 2 x 20 min Practice Races

Clinic topics by week are:
Week 1 - Aug 16th: Dismounts and remounts
Week 2 – Aug 23rd: Barriers and run ups
Week 3 – Aug 30th: Starts
Week 4 – Sept 6th: Cornering and “line taking”
Week 5 – Sept 13th: Open Practice – covering what has been learned
Week 6 – Sept 20th Open Practice
After week 6 the clinic portion of practice will end.

Hope to see you all out at BP!
