Find your best race yet!
You’ve put in the long hours building your fitness, but have you tuned your riding skills to match? RaceTune clinics start with the same fundamental MTB riding skills as a regular riding clinic, but then we put those skills into practice on a specific race course with individual help and assessment. For 2019, I’ll be partnering with Wednesday at Wakefield, a grass-roots weekday series just outside of Washington DC.
This RaceTune clinic is aimed at beginner-to-intermediate racers, adults and teens ages 14-and-up, who are looking to improve their placing by being more efficient and capable on the bike. Some previous riding experience is recommended, but riders who are new to racing are also welcome.
The first clinic will be the week before the first Wednesdays @ Wakefield race and focus on fundamental skills that will help you improve your riding and feel more comfortable on any terrain. The clinic will culminate with a guided course pre-ride that will focus individual attention on parts of the course that YOU want to work on. The following week you’ll get a chance to apply your skills during the race.
For those able and interested, there are two opportunities to follow-up and see where you could improve--either the Saturday after the first race, or the first Wednesday in July. If you can only make the main clinic, you'll still come away with a great set of tools applicable to any riding situation.
Our W@W schedule will be as follows:
Saturday, June 8, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm: Skills Clinic and course pre-ride
Wednesday, June 12: W@W Race #1
Saturday, June 15, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm: Optional Course re-visist

Wednesday, July 3, 6:00 pm: Optional skills touch-up before series finale
Wednesday, July 10, 6:00 pm: W@W Race #4
All clinics, pre-rides, and races will be at Wakefield Park, in Annandale Virginia.
You do not have to do all of the W@W races to participate in the clinic, however, riders who participate in the RaceTune clinic will get a $10 discount off the price of their W@W 4-race series registration.
