DCCX Cyclocross Clinic, October 17th @ 4:30 pm

* DCCX Cyclocross Clinic, October 17th @ 4:30 pm

* Get ready for two days of fast and fun cyclocross racing with a clinic the day before, compliments of DCMTB and CXHairs. Beginners at DCCX have an additional race option: a  "Rookie Race" on Saturday afternoon.
* The promotors of DCCX are offering a (nearly) FREE clinic at the race venue on Friday October 17th at 4:30pm. (Registration begins at 4:00 on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home).

* This clinic is open to people of all ages and cyclocross skill levels, from rookies to experts. The clinic will be divided up, with DC-ChiX clinic led by two local legends.

* Libbey Sheldon (CXHairs) and Heather Heinrich (Wooden Wheels Racing) will be teaching the women's only DC-ChiX group. They will be sharing basic CX skills and offering a course preview to women's group. First time racers are encouraged to attend to get tips on riding the course.

* Wes Schempf (SEAVS/Haymarket) will be leading a clinic for the rest of the attendees. Wes (former MAC and MABRA Elite Mens Champion) will provide both useful tips, and a course preview. Wes will be assisted by DCMTB and CX Hairs team members who can also work with small groups to go over basic CX skills.

* The clinic is open to racers of all levels, and is the best chance to get a pre-ride of the course in before the weekend of racing. Juniors, advanced, intermediate and rookie racers are welcome!*

*  While the clinics are free, the insurance isn't. If you hold a current USA Cycling license you must pay a $1 fee for insurance. If you don’t have a license, you must pay $6 for insurance and a one-day license. Junior racers must be accompanied by an adult to sign their waiver form.

* A photo ID is required to access the AFRH campus. The campus is located at  Rock Creek Church Rd, NW & Upshur St, NW. Enter at Upshur Rd. gate and follow signs to clinic site. Please arrive early to register. Clinics will start on time.

* After the clinic, participants will have the opportunity to ride the course and practice their new skills.
