Well-Fit Cyclocross Technique and Race Strategy
Returning for its 4th season, the Well-Fit Cyclocross Technique and Race Strategy training program will give you the skills and strategy you need to be successful racing the Chicago Cyclocross Cup series (ChiCrossCup).
In this class, Coach Ted, an experienced coach and racer, will show you what it takes to improve racing performance. Expect to learn more about:
equipment set up
bike handling skills
He has a proven teaching methodology that gets results and he will teach basic cyclocross skills and then drill the basic skills in a progressive manner until the students masters them. Then the athlete will learn more advanced skills and strategies to prepare for specific race situations.
Expect to significantly improve your bike handling skills as well as learn what it takes to prepare for and execute a race to the best of your ability. You will also be briefed before every race so you know what to expect and have a strategy for that weekend’s race.
The training group will meet once weekly every Saturday morning for 10 weeks. Each session will be held at one of the cyclocross race venues in the city of Chicago where the athlete will learn new skills as well as learn how to manage a race course with speed and grace.

"This class took me from my first ever bike race to the State Championship race this fall. Ted’s training plan built fitness while honing the skills needed for cross racing. I got stronger, faster and had more fun training than ever before." - E. G., 2011 IL Cyclocross State Champion, Cat 4.
"I picked up cyclocross with no bike handling experience of any type. I wanted to improve my bike-handling skills and also stay in shape after the triathlon season. CX ended up being a perfect solution. I'm very fortunate and grateful that I had Coach Ted help prepare me with a well-designed race strategy to have both successful races and a full CX season." - R. K., Category 4 ChiCrossCup Champion 2009
"Ted, thanks for all the help this season. I learned a ton and am already looking forward to next season. I'm hooked on cross!" -S. B. Cat 4 racer
"This was a great class where we learned a lot from Ted both during practice and at races. He was more than willing to help address problem areas, such as off-camber turns and high-speed dismounts. He was also generous with great advice on dealing with tricky segments of each course, as well as at practice prior to race day. It felt great to cover the "basics" in each Saturday practice. Just wanted to let you know I was more than pleased with the class." -M. B. Cat 3/ Masters racer
