Road 401 – Road Race Upgrade Clinic – $49.99 for WSBA members, $74.99 for non-members, $25 Juniors
Start your season on the right track. Our USA Cycling-sanctioned upgrade clinic teaches new racers the fundamentals with hands-on practice and feedback from experienced coaches. This class accelerates the learning curve for new racers by offering riders who complete the class three mass start points (for Cat 5 men) or three upgrade points (for Cat 4 men and women) toward their next upgrade. See USAC upgrade guidelines here.
Road 401 is held on several dates in February and March each season. The class covers skills required in racing: pack riding; racing tactics; cornering & handling; etiquette, and more. It also covers types of racing and USAC rules. The class starts and finishes at our Sand Point shop. Bring your bike, warm riding clothes, and a snack. We start with a classroom presentation on the technical elements of racing, head out for two hours of handling drills, and conclude with a short written test. WSBA members must bring proof of membership. All riders must know their USA Cycling license numbers.
