Team Clinics

Tête de la Course Cycling is offering one day clinics for your club team. The clinics will be presented by myself and Tom Peterson and consist of some classroom time followed up by on the bike practice. Both of us have a tremendous amount of experience in the sport of cycling and bring unique perspectives to the table. I have directed teams at the professional, amateur and national team level and Tom raced professionally for eight years, six of them at the World Tour Level. We have a lot of knowledge and we would love to pass it along.
