By Stephen Frothingham

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (BRAIN) — Mechanics interested in learning how to work for a race team or event can now apply for registration in USA Cycling’s 2016 Bill Woodul Race Mechanics Clinic, which is being held November 16-20 2 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

The program helps mechanics reach the next level of professional bicycle mechanic expertise, an advantage in a retail store and in work with teams and events. USAC-licensed mechanics may support Olympic trials, national championships, USA Cycling training camps and international events.

Interested mechanics need to first send in a resume outlining at least two years of bike mechanic experience. Once approved, they will be sent information on how to register.

The cost is $675 if paid before September 30, or $725 from October 1-15. The cost includes housing, meals, course materials and a two-year USAC mechanics license. The course is limited to 60 participants.
