Triathletes do not often get to practice the art of drafting
British Triathlon will be running a bike handling/drafting skills session at Thruxton Circuit on 3rd April 2022 at 10:30.
This is perfect for athletes that have qualified or looking to qualify for age group racing and want to brush up on their drafting/handling skills.
Equally if you want to get confident riding in a group, this is perfect for you too.
The session starts at 10:30 with some handling skills such as cornering and then heads onto the track to get some drafting practice and group riding practice/tips. There is plenty of time to put those new skills into practice and take part in the sprint duathlon after starting at 12:30.
You must have a draft legal bike (See our draft legal page) This means not TT bars. All riders must wear a helmet
The session is £10 and you must sign up in advance: SIGN UP HERE
