Park to lead free race clinics at US Cup

Pro racer Krista Park will be leading free racing clinics for amateur riders at select events of the East and West US Cup series. The first clinic is scheduled for Sunday, March 1 at Bonelli Park at 1:15 pm. Beginner through intermediate riders are targeted, but riders of all levels are welcome.

In 2008, Park finished inside the top fifteen overall for the women's National Mountain Bike Series (NMBS) pro cross country and short track series standings while riding for the Kenda Titus Hayes team. As a way to give back to the sport and riders alike, she is offering her knowledge and experience to any racer or rider interested in learning more about the fundamentals of racing and proper preparation.

Clinic topics will include details on the following: training and recovery nutrition, race strategy, pre-ride preparation, warm-up, race skills and execution and bike preparation.

A relaxed, off the bike Q & A session will provide some insight for riders or racers new to the sport of mountain biking. Those interested in attending should RSVP by email to or visit her website at
