Utah Beginner Racing Program

BEC is proud to present the Utah Beginning Racer Program:

The Beginning Racer Program is a USA Cycling program designed to provide new racers with an enjoyable and educational experience as they learn to race their bike. The program is broken down into five separate clinics, with each clinic holding a unique and progressive curriculum. Each clinic is comprised of three components; 1) on-bike instructional clinic, 2) mentored race, and 3) clinic and race debrief. The five clinics are:

Basic Pack Skills – Protecting Your Front Wheel
Cornering – Choosing and Holding Your Line
Pack Awareness & Skills
Sprinting Basics
Bringing it All Together
USA Cycling rules state a Cat 5 cyclist may upgrade to Cat 4 by obtaining 10 points. These points can be achieved by finishing 10 mass start races, or 5 USA Cycling approved Beginning Racer Program clinics, or a combination of both. Mass start races count as one (1) point each and USA Cycling approved Beginning Racer Program clinics count as 2 points each clinic. In order to receive the full two (2) points from a USA Cycling Beginning Racer Program clinic, the rider must take part in all three (3) components of the clinic; 1) on-bike instruction/clinic, 2) race, 3) race debrief (no partial points will be awarded for only attending one of the three components of the clinic) The Utah 2016 Beginning Racer Clinics will be held as follows:

Wednesday April 13th 6-8pm: Clinics 1 and 2
Wednesday April 20th 6-8pm: Clinics 3 and 4
Wednesday April 27th 6-7pm: Clinic 5
All clinics will be held in the parking lot of Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, UT. All riders must hold a current USA Cycling Race license if they want to use the points to upgrade.

In an effort to help our cycling community grow and be safer, the Utah Cycling Association is subsidizing the $250 cost of the program (all five clinics) so the program costs: 1) men: $125, 2) women: $50, 3) juniors $50
