Until
10:30am
Location

Moor Park, Preston

The Red Rose Olympic cyclocross coaching sessions are starting this weekend with this first session focusing on starts. The sessions are open to riders of all ages and we'll have a couple of groups so we can have advanced riders honing their skills and novice riders learning some important basic skills ready for the upcoming Red Rose Olympic Cyclocross race at Hoghton Tower. For this week either a mountain bike or cyclocross bike will be fine.

Red Rose at the Dolans

Red Rose Olympic riders have been at the Dolan Series 2019, run over three weekends at Southport, with each rider doing two races on each day. The first race on the day is the long race which tends to be more tactical and is followed by a short race which tends to be an all out hectic, full gas sprint! The riders all had to put into practice their  skills and hone their race craft, all while at the limit.

Summer Cycling 2019

Red Rose Olympic are getting geared up for a summer of cycling!

Our coaching sessions at UCLAN Sport Arena start this coming weekend. These sessions are aimed at riders of all ages and are great for riders looking to get more confident riding a bike and learn some basic skills to people looking to race or who are already racing regularly. Each week we coach a different skill at the beginning of the session and build it into exercises and games later in the session.

Hoghton Tower Cyclocross Race report

Despite the rain - and there was a lot of rain - there was a great turnout and high spirits at the first race of the 2018 NWCCA season. The Red Rose team put on a great event with a challenging course in a fabulous setting.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out setting up the day before, marshalling on the day and tidying up afterwards.

Results are available from the NWCCA.
