The “Level Up Your Ride” women’s developmental clinics are growing within the landscape of the American Criterium Cup (ACC). Kelly Barrientes, Owner of Wolfpack p/b ProBike Kit has traveled to each of the previous ACC events offering skills and drills training to beginner level female cyclists. Riders in the clinic also receive support from the Wolfpack race team to line up at a future race. This is true grass roots support and what future bike racers are built from. This clinic series has made an impact for all ACC events and will be taking place in Boise this weekend to support the local up and coming racers.

“Boise is an important stop for The American Criterium Cup. It’s an established race on the calendar, plus it’s midway, and the competition is getting fierce. Two riders, Alfredo Rodriguez and Maggie Coles-Lyster, dominate the general classification, with Maggie leading the Women’s Spring competition. Brandon Feehery leads the Men’s Sprint and is a few good finishes away from Alfredo. It’s bike racing, and anything can happen.” Jeff Corbett, Series Manager for American Criterium Cup.
