February 4, 2008 – Designed to improve cycling performance for young riders aged 15-19 of all disciplines, the Spring Supercamp has a particular focus on riders aged 17 and 18, and those invited riders moving into this age group as well as first-year Espoir riders. The mix of group road riding and racing as well as track riding will be held over 10 days and help riders start off a new season. Led by NCCP Level 3 cycling coach, Jeremy Storie, the Supercamp starts on Friday 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 2008 season. The Supercamp is designed to improve all disciplines of racing. 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, 2008.
