The Bicycle Sport Shop Beginning Racer Program is a five clinic series designed to help new bike racers develop the skills necessary to compete confidently at the Driveway Series Criterium. Each clinic’s progressive curriculum focuses on a singular racing skill—such as cornering, pacelining, and pack positioning—and finishes with a controlled practice race. (Read about the Driveway Series drawing more women to the sport on the Statesman!)
The Beginning Racer Program is sanctioned by USA Cycling, and run by Bicycle Sport Shop’s elite racing team, Super Squadra presented by Eliel Cycling. For each clinic completed, participants will receive two points toward their Category 4 upgrade.

The clinics are held at the Driveway Austin racetrack during the Driveway Series bike races. After each clinic, participants are encouraged to watch the Driveway Series racing, and enjoy a complimentary NXNW beer or Austin East Cider!
