Major Taylor Velodrome – Indianapolis, IN
Anyone can tell you what to do to improve your performance. 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)
Today is arrival day. Out of town athletes should plan to arrive by 3pm if possible. Each athlete is responsible for building their own bike and ensuring that all their equipment is properly tuned and ready for a big week of riding. We will have our first pre-camp meeting around 5pm at the coach’s hotel and will complete the sign in/registration process. This is also when we will do individual introductions, general camp overview and plan for the weekend. Once complete we will go to dinner as a group at a local restaurant. **If you want to schedule a bike fit with ERO, you must arrive early on this day and schedule ahead of time with ERO directly at www.ero-sports.com**

The Major Taylor Velodrome is a 333m outdoor concrete velodrome with 28 degree banking in the corners. Built in 1982, the Major Taylor Velodrome was home to the 1987 Pan American Games. Since then, the velodrome regularly hosts national championship events and also serves as the full time home of the Marian University Cycling Team. With a legacy truly as great as the rider it was named after, we are honored to be able to put on a clinic at this historic facility.
