2008 Cycle-Smart Northfield Cyclo-Cross Camp
Cycle-Smart is proud to present the 8th annual Northfield Cyclo-Cross Camp, taking place September 5-7, 2008 in Northfield, Massachusetts.
The camp's unique attraction lies in its beautiful setting, fun atmosphere, mix of levels and personalities, and the opportunity to learn and practice skills with some of the best 'cross racers in the United States.
"Adam Myerson passed along one tip about 'cross starts that was worth the entire price of camp alone! No matter what level racer you are, camp will fit into your agenda." -Chris Mayhew, multiple-time camp participant.
Cycle-Smart coaches will provide hands-on instruction in technique and training for cyclo-cross, with an aim towards a 1:5 coach:rider ratio. Full vegetarian meals and lodging will be provided.
We'll be sticking this year with an additional coaching session on Sunday. We've found every year that we simply couldn't get everything covered in the time allotted. Rather than lose the entire day to racing on Sunday, we've opted for another day of instruction, and our own small training race.
Mechanical services will be handled by Mavic Neutral Support, and Van Dessel Cycles will have demo bikes available all day Saturday. Van Dessel will be offering a one-time deal to camp participants, offering 15% off on all demo bikes present at the camp. This is an opportunity to not just test ride a bike, but actually race and train on one before deciding to buy. Tifosi Optics and Crank Brothers will also be providing merchandise giveaways to camp participants.
The camp is open to riders of all ability levels, although everyone must have a USCF or NORBA license. Unlicensed riders can purchase a license at the camp for an additional charge.
'Cross Camp Level 4 Training Program
For camp participants, Cycle-Smart is offering a special Level 4, 3-month training program at a discounted price of $125. This individualized training program is aimed to take the hands on technique-focused coaching from camp and add training-forcused coaching to take you through the Fall 'cross season.
