Intro to Racing with R Spokes Coaching
By: WMBA Sponsor, Stephanie Surch - aka Robbie Spokes
Have you ever thought about doing a mountain bike race, but been intimidated or not know where to start? Join us for a free Intro to Racing Clinic for all WMBA members hosted by R Spokes Coaching.
This evening will be perfect for newer riders or those wanting to try racing. I’ll address the common concerns people have - what category to race, which format, which is a good race to try for the first time, what to carry with you, how to eat/drink in the race, what to do at the start, how to pass people or what to do when being passed by a faster rider...all the questions that usually come up! I want to dispel the myth that racing is for “serious” riders only and can be fun for anyone!
Also, for riders who have some experience racing but want to try their hand at different events or longer races, I can offer some tips as well - hydration tips, nutrition tips, how to prepare, how to pace yourself, etc.
This free clinic will be held on Wednesday, May 15th at Criterium on the patio from 6-8 p.m. and is limited to the first 20 people who RSVP here.
I also offer individual coaching services for both mountain bike skills instruction and custom training plans. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule a consultation meeting today. Investing even a small amount into your mountain biking skills and training will return so much to you as you’ll gain the confidence and fitness to enjoy your time on the bike so much more.
I have over 30 years of racing experience, and my coaching emphasizes encouragement in overall wellness, not just mountain biking. All R Spokes Coaching services are based on a suggested-donation rate scale, and can be modified if cost presents a barrier. Just reach out.
