Youth enrichment and development through cycling.
The Donderdag! Youth Cyclocross Clinics are open to anyone interested in cyclocross racing and race day fun. The mission is to provide a safe, challenging, and fun space to learn about cyclocross. To help experience outdoor weather on a bike, with food and friends. To prepare parents, guardians, adults and kids with clear and simple race day skills. We encourage riders to be a the starting line on time, giving attention to officials, and then racing their very best, that day, that race.
The clinic includes volunteers, and encourages community leadership. Volunteers become recognized leaders at the local races. Donderdag! junior racers are surrounded by a larger community. Donderdag! clinics coach teen riders to acknowledge, protect, and lead younger junior riders. And, everyone is coached for Balance, Agility, Strength and Exposure. BASE skills will bring speed and success in time. Finally the mission of Donderdag! is to remind the community of the race and strength found in the grass roots of coaching, leading and serving others.
Cyclocross is a sport made for grass roots living.
