Summer & Fall Extensions
August is left open for full-day rides, meeting up at the Bike Park, taking fun trips and decompressing from lots of structured training. Many riders choose to either resume for a fall session, especially if enduro events come back online, or some switch to Cyclocross Team from Sept – December. We will release more info in June.
From January to Spring Break. A modern off-season designed to help you enter the season stronger, fitter and smarter! For many riders the loss of riding from November to March is very difficult so our weekly activities help connect your progression from one season to the next.
