Cyclocross Skills School

Cyclocross Skills School 2024! The longest running CX clinic series on the island!

Join us for this informative skills clinics, around 2hrs each, over three Sundays before CX racing begins. Great for beginners, or anyone looking to top up and improve their cyclocross skills. Cross on the Rock is coming up fast, let’s make sure you’re ready!!

FACT: This long-time clinic series has been running since 2008, check out our 2009 poster PDF here – classic!!! 😂

Best bike choices for the clinics are a cyclocross bike (of course!), but a gravel or mountain bike works fine too. Will be in parks in Victoria/Fairfield.

The first clinic will be Sunday, August 25th, 2024, 10am start, $25. Sign up is required!
