BC Cycling Performance Spring 2009 Supercamp
March 13-22, 2009
Designed to improve cycling performance for riders of all disciplines, the Spring Supercamp has a particular focus on male and female developing riders aged 16-30 that race at a category 3 or higher level and have made a commitment to cycling. The mix of group road riding and racing as well as track riding will be held over nine days and help riders start off a new season.
Led by NCCP Level 3 cycling coach Jeremy Storie, the Supercamp starts on Friday evening with rider arrival and orientation and continues with road races each Saturday and Sunday, followed by road and track training sessions on the weekdays between. Riders will leave the Supercamp with a better understanding of competitive cycling and with a fresh start for the 2009 season.
The Supercamp is designed to improve all disciplines of racing with a week of optimized training for each rider by grouping appropriate levels together. The on-bike training sessions are geared around road and track riding, and will take place on quiet back roads of the Fraser Valley area and at the Burnaby Velodrome. Be assured that the skills and fitness developed on the road and track are completely transferable to off-road riding and racing. Final details and itinerary will be sent to all participants after March 1, 2009.
