American cyclocross professional racer Jonathan Page hosted a cyclocross clinic at the Ogden Cyclocross Park just a few days after the grand opening race at the venue. Proceeds from the clinic went to the Amy D Foundation.
The Ogden CX Course was a spectacular venue for both the clinic at the race days before. The course includes sand, a lot of elevation gain, as is a great place to hold any 'cross practice. The clinic started off with mounts and dismounts (the step through is not dead) before heading up to the rest of the course to focus on sand technique and cornering drills. Additionally there was an extensive discussion on nutrition, tire tread choice, and clinchers vs tubulars vs tubeless.
We cannot say enough about the quality of this cyclocross park and encourage you to head over to the park for your next cyclocross practice. This park will serve as the venue for the USAC Utah State Cyclocross Championships to be held in December.
We appreciate everyone who came out to the clinic and supported Utah cyclocross, the Amy D Foundation, and the Ogden Cyclocross Park. It is our goal to make 'cross great in Utah and with your help, we can do it. Stay tuned as we will update this article with a gallery of images from the day.
