The NEBC Clinic was just announced. A great event, highly recommended to all!

All,

Once again the NEBC is hosting the annual spring racing clinic. This is a great opportunity for new and experienced riders to learn racing skills in a comfortable secure environment. The clinic involves two classroom sessions held at the Burlington Public Library and four road sessions held at the former Fort Devens Military Base in Devens. The culmination of the clinic is the race held at Wells Ave in Newton.

Skills learned at the clinic include:

Bike handling: Cornering; pacelines & double pacelines; riding in close groups; incidental contact.
Racing skills: Sprinting; time trialing; climbing and descending; starting and finishing.
Tactics and strategies: Road racing as a team sport; applying team strategies and tactics in race situations; using the race course and your strengths to your advantage.
Training and equipment: Periodization and specificity; training effort zones; racing bicycles & equipment; maintaining and performance tuning your equipment; proper bike fit.

At the conclusion of the program is a Graduation Exercise,
