Ready to Race! Introduction to Competition (R2R) is the context for coaches who will primarily work with new competitive cyclists at the community and club level. These athletes will likely be in the Learn to Train - Train to Train stages of LTAD, although the context could apply to any new racer of any age. These athletes have basic but developed cycling skills and the desire to begin competing within a structured training and competition program. They should have passed through an entry-level Community Initiation program (CCI) to help them develop the basic skills.
R2R training replaces all elements of Level 1 and Level 2 Cycling in the previous “Levels NCCP”. R2R training consists of five modules:
• Training Basics, classroom, 14 hours;
• Basic Cycling Skills, on-bike, 8 hours;
• One of MTB, Road, or BMX Skills and Tactics, on-bike, 7 hours;
• Training to Race, classroom, 14 hours;
• A second of MTB, Road, or BMX Skills and Tactics, on-bike, 7 hours.
On successful completion of the modules, the coach has Trained status in NCCP. After successfully completing an evaluation of his/her coaching performance and completing the on-line Make Ethical Decisions module, the coach can attain Certified status.
