Camping at camp

We’ve had a lot of people ask about camping at TWCX so we’ll just put this right here:

Grandfather Campground
125 Riverside Dr, Banner Elk, NC 28604
(828) 963-7275

Great location and not too far away from TWCX’s training grounds. They have both primitive and RV spots 

Camp Dietician!

Emily Shields Werner MS RD will be at camp to answer all of your nutrition questions. She knows how many cupcakes are too many in one sitting and what this whole “hydration” fad is about.

2019 Summer CX Camp Dates set!

We will be joined by The Jonathan Page this year! August 17-18 in beautiful  Banner Elk, NC, right at the foot of Beech Mtn.

That makes two current Pro racers (Kerry Werner and Em Shields Werner) and two exPro riders (Jonathan Page and Jon Hamblen) at camp to teach you how to get faster on your cyclocross bike, smarter about nutrition, and on top of race preparation.

Plus, we always have a bunch of Pro riders come out to camp for some early season training. Eric Thompson,  Alex Ryan, Cody Philips, and Travis Livermon are regulars at our camp. There are over 30 National championship wins and medals among this group. So much talent in one place at the most effective yet affordable weekend cyclocross camp in the United States!

Registration will be up soon. There will be a house this year with limited space available to campers staying over night. More details on the house and schedule soon.

Campers, you guys rocked!!! Thank you.

Day 1 started off with some basic skills to help everyone remember what CX is about. Dismounts, remounts, suit casing, shoulder mounts, barriers, all of these were key focuses on Day 1.

Day 2 started off with a light jog, followed by pancakes! 

Then we hit the Lees McRae CX trails for more on the bike skills tutorials. Committing to the rut was a camper favorite, riding up a sloggy, boggy, uphill was less favorited but still appreciated. 

Then we ended the day with some starts and a game of bike soccer.

Thanks to all those who came out as well as the people and partners that helped make the camp run smooth. Until next year, cheers!

 

Schedule Change: Bring a pair of running shoes!!!

Just a slight schedule change, for the better. 

Sunday morning, prior to pancakes we are going to go through some warm up stretching drills, a few activation moves, and then do a 20min jog (no man left behind)

Sunday’s Schedule:

8am- Gather for stretching drills and warm up followed by jog around course (20min jog)
Then, we are going to make pancakes!!!! And we will have coffee for you! 
Skills for 2 hrs then start the “racing” – not a race, just riding really fast as a group and trying to finish in front of each other.
