AUSTIN, Texas (BRAIN) — The Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association is teaming up with USA Cycling to produce a four-day clinic for aspiring race mechanics.
The class continues the tradition started in the 1980s by national team mechanic Bill Woodul. USA Cycing has produced the class in-house every year for many years.
“USA Cycling is excited to partner with the PBMA to bring real world skills and experience to aspiring race mechanics,” said Chuck Hodge, USAC’s VP of operations.
PBMA vice president Jeff Rowe said, “Everyone on the board of directors at the PBMA has attended the clinic, a number of them actually having also been instructors, with our emphasis as the PBMA on education this is a natural fit as advanced mechanics training.”
The workshop starts Jan. 24 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The registration cost of $775 includes ground transportation, meals, lodging, and all clinic materials.
Participants will walk away with new skills for use in and out of the workplace, and after successfully completing a skills and knowledge test, a USA Cycling Category 3 Race Mechanics License.
