Athlete Lab ABC Road Bike Skills Clinic
21/6 Saturday 7.30am
ABC Road Bike Skills Clinic (120mins) – Meet/finish back at Athlete Lab (71 Amoy Street).
Session starts with an easy warm-up ride from Amoy Street to the slopes of Mt. Faber. Then, practice will take place at available car parks and on the slopes of Mt. Faber, and includes the following: – Attack Position Variations + E-Braking Downhill ; Climbing & Descending Practice ; Cornering Solo and Group Practice ; Shifting Mastery.  Don’t let the name fool you – ABC works for the more seasoned cyclists too. Triathletes stand to benefit as much as roadies will for this session’s skill set. Anyone’s who’s wondered how to get more confident in a competitive, fast-moving group of race-pace riders will fully appreciate the confidence a focused morning of ‘sessioning’ can bring to their riding.

Session is open and free to all ANZA members – just turn up and introduce yourself to Coach Wilson (98784113)
