Velo Sports Center – Carson, CA

Attention to detail is the name of the game at BIG Picture Cycling. And no single event highlights that greater than our trackside camps and clinics. During this weekend at the Velo Sports Center in Carson, CA, you will get 2x 3 hours private track sessions with hands on instruction from BPC coaches. Along with having BPC coaches present during the LAVRA mass start, TT and sprint tournament racing for coaching and feedback live on the ground. The skills covered and techniques taught will cover all aspects of competitive cycling. See the daily details tab for more information.

But the BPC coaching staff believes that visual examples help our athletes to learn the fastest. That’s why during our track clinic weekends we video tape and review nearly everything we do with all of our athletes. We have also found that doing group video review allows for the greatest depth of learning as you get to see, ask questions and receive instruction on not only your own efforts, but the efforts of everyone at the camp. We also offer the option to have your videos from the weekend edited together and sent to you to keep for an additional fee (see “Add Ons” tab)
