    I’ve raced on the road but never on the track. Is this clinic for me?
    Yes. The clinic sessions are ideal for Cat 1-4 Women who have completed at least 1 Beginner Saturday sessions and are familiar with the basics of riding the track. Women who have attended 3 Saturday sessions and want to learn racing skills are also highly encouraged to attend.

    Do these sessions replace the Beginner Sessions?
    No. You must be familiar and comfortable with riding on the track before attending these sessions. It is preferred that each attendee participate in at least two Beginner Sessions. If you have only completed one session, please contact the promoter prior to registering. I’ve completed 3 Beginner Sessions.

    Can I attend the clinic?
    Yes. These sessions are targeted at building onto the skills you have learned in the beginners sessions and introducing you to event specific racing and training at the track

    What if I’ve never raced on the track before?
    The sessions are structured around building racing skills on the track. These skills will also help bolster your road racing acumen. The clinic is perfect for those who currently race on the road but want to race on the track.

    Do I need my own track bike?
    This is preferred. We will only have a limited number of track bikes available for rent (due to gear requirements for the sessions). Track bike rental will be evaluated on a case-by case basis.

    How do I know that my registration for the clinic is confirmed?
    Once you fill out the registration form, the event promoter will contact you as soon as possible with PayPal payment information. Your payment is confirmation that you are registered.

    I can only make it to one session. Is that okay?
    It’s up to you! Based on feedback from previous clinics, we’ve designed the 2012 sessions as individual, skill-specific modules. Each session targets different aspects of racing on the track. Take one, two or all 3 sessions.
