Clothing Reminder

July 23, 2014  |  General  |  No Comments

Just a reminder to all…

CBRC clothing can be ordered at any time via the Verge “MyStore” online ordering system. Orders will be shipped directly to you three weeks after your order is placed. Lots of time to get “kitted” up for the chilly cyclocross season ahead.

Also, don’t forget CBRC’s “Crash reimbursement” policy…. You can have your jersey and/or bib shorts replaced no charge if you were unfortunate enough to crash (or get crashed) while racing in the CBRC colors. Contact Christina Nash for details at Christina has a limited supply of clothing in stock that you may fit into.

Both on-the-bike and in-classroom instruction will be provided. All participants must have a bicycle in good working condition, helmet, and bicycle attire for the expected weather conditions. A USAC license is recommended. USAC licenses can be purchased on-site for $70.00. A light lunch with beverages will be provided. This event will be held rain or shine.

The clinic will be a minimum of 4 hours of combined classroom and on the road training. Note: Attendees successfully completing the clinic can receive 2 race day credits to upgrade from a Category 5 to a Category 4, or two upgrade points for Cat 4 racers wishing to upgrade to Cat 3.

Andy is a well known local bike racer with 30+ years of bicycle racing experience.
