Description

DTCC CX, in association with Dirt School are proud to present a women-only CX coaching session for riders based in NE Scotland. The aim of the session is to lower the perceived entry barriers for women who would like to compete in a cyclocross race, and to improve the experience of female riders who are already racing.

The course, run by former Scottish CX Champion Rab Wardell, is open to any women riders (aged 18 or over). You do not need to be a member of a club. Subsidised tickets are available for riders signed up for the Scottish CX Championships 2017 at Knockburn Loch on Dec 03.

The 3 hour session will provide first class coaching in the techniques required to race CX at whatever level you wish, and is suitable for everyone from first-time racers to experieced CX campaigners. After the course you'll have the confidence and skills needed to enjoy competing in Scotland's friendliest and most fun cycling discipline.
