Criterium races make a great introduction to racing road bikes. They involve a mass start and then as many laps as you can of a closed circuit in a set time (usually around 50 minutes). They are great fun but, like anything, can seem daunting if you are new to them.
This coached session will develop the skills used in criterium (crit) racing. Whether you are looking to practise and refine your technique or have never raced before, these sessions are for you! With the 2019 season drawing to a close, this is the perfect time to learn the skills with plenty of time to practise before the 2020 season.
During the session we will cover getting the perfect start, moving through a group, working together, attacking and counter-attacking, and sprint finishes.
The session will be fun while encouraging you to push yourself. You should have a reasonable level of fitness and road bikes are essential (bikes can be hired from the Fife Cycle Park if you are unable to transport your own).
There will be a minimum of six riders on the course and a maximum of 16. The session will be led by Level 2 Road Cycle Coach, Diana Farrell
These sessions are the perfect place to practise those essential race skills.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
