Mosaic Novice Learn to Race Series

 

In partnership with our sponsor, MOSAIC, EV/DEVO is proud to continue our Learn to Race program.

The goal of Learn to Race (LTR) is to give riders the skills, practice, and confidence required to race to the best of
their ability.

This program is designed for first-time racers, triathletes needing draft-clinic credits, and experienced riders
wishing to brush up on race specific skills needed to compete effectively. These clinics run in conjunction with the
Spring Series races held from February to April and the World Tuesday Night Championship (WTNC) criterium races held from May to September.

LTR 1 is a skills clinic, where riders learn the basics of road racing. Safety, practice and evaluation of group
riding, race riding in the peloton, drafting and cornering in a race, race starts and finishes.

LTR 2 begins with a short review of the basics of racing, finishing with a practical race on the course in a
controlled, no-drop environment. A PASS grade must be achieved to be allowed to enter Escape Velocity Spring
Series events and/or the WTNC series.

This clinic is required for RR and crit-racing only. Those who wish to participate in TT events can do so without participating in this clinic. There will be ample time in between the clinic and TT start times if taking part in both events.

Note: LTR 1 is a pre-requisite to LTR 2.

Racers do not have to complete each course on two consecutive Sundays. If riders are not able to complete both courses during the Spring Series, riders may attend the WTNC series to complete the LTR Program. Dates are listed below.

All first-time racers, provincial-license holders, and those who have not raced within the last five years, MUST complete and earn a passing grade to be allowed to race at any of the Escape Velocity Spring Series events or the World Tuesday Night Championships. We will also accept proof of completion of an equivalent LTR clinic run by another cycling club.
