TRP Brakes, in conjunction with Leopard Bikes, Cyclocross Magazine, and Challenge Tires, is pleased to present a skills clinic with Joachim Parbo on Tuesday Sept. 28th from 5:30 - 7:00p.

They will meet at Palo Alto Baylands park at the intersection of Embarcadero Road and Embarcadero Way (T-intersection) for a 90-minute barrage of 'cross. Joachim is a four time Danish National Cyclocross Champion and is ranked in the UCI top 50. He will offer his experience and insights into classic techniques like mounts, dismounts, off camber corners, sand and more. Mixed with personal feedback for each rider, training and racing advice this is sure to provide a well rounded experience no matter your level.

Sterling Sports Group is also supporting this event, and it does appear that the Danish National Champion will be taking on all challengers and competing in the CCCX Series Race #2 at Manzanita Park in Prunedale.

Complete information on this Cross Clinic/Ride is here...
Paul Guerra ride-
Cyclocross ride in Mountain View / Palo Alto, Wed Sep 15th, 6 pm
What: Cyclocross ride, mini training race, maybe skills practice.

Who: Anyone who wants to ride in circles in the dirt.
When: Wednesday, September 15th, roll at 6 PM (15 minutes earlier than last week, maybe the last evening ride of the season)

Where: Meet at Terminal and San Antonio in Mountain View (37.433994,-122.099755). Take the San Antonio exit off 101 and go North until it dead ends in a parking lot or ride there.
If you miss the start, meet us at Byxbee Park: (37.451899,-122.10439). It's a popular area for the whole community, please be cool about joggers and walkers.

Why: Because practicing your mounts and dismounts by yourself in a park makes you look crazy. Doing it with a bunch of people in a park makes you part of something.
CX training races at Arastradero Preserve (Palo Alto) as usual on Thursdays at 6pm.
Same course as usual, start at the pond / pumping station.
If you are new - just look for CX riders at the parking lot just before 6pm.
There will be the usual warm-up lap, followed by 3-4 race laps.
I found this, and it seems quite interesting.
