Jungle Cross Training Clinic

Availability: Registration Has Closed

13-08-2017

In August we are taking a break from racing and organising a training day for everyone who wants to improve their MTB and Cyclocross skills. The morning will feature some of Singapore's best coaches taking each group through the Jungle Cross course and demonstrating how to safely and most efficiently navigate both the climbs and descents of the course. Each participant will gain valuable insight from the coaches as to how best to ride and to manage the course. This is very much a hands on course where each participant can learn and practice each section of the course.

Coach Background 

Take Control of Your Races

 

Take Control

In conjunction with some of the best mtb and cyclocross riders and coaches in Singapore, Cycosports is taking a “time-out” from racing to provide a skills clinic for the off-road community.

Have you ever wondered how riders consistently stand on the podium? How they negotiate corners, tree roots, gravel, rocks and logs? How they maintain their pace and line on hills climbs? How they keep their centre of gravity in descents and make it look so easy?

Here’s your opportunity to take a morning out and get expert advice and hands on training to improve your bike handling skills. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced rider, the skills clinic is a great opportunity improve your riding skills and take control of your races.

 

Clinic Groups

 

The idea of the training sessions is to split into a number of groups, assigning coaches to specialise on particular. Final groups and numbers will be determined by the level of sign up.

Proposed groups at this stage are:

1) Beginners MTB

2) Experienced MTB (looking for the edge)

3) Ladies MTB (if we have 5 or more ladies sign up)*

4) Cyclocross

* We are currently looking for an experienced female MTB rider who can assist in the coaching
