    What is a Super D race?
    Great question! Here is a very unbiased answer from
    A biased answer would be: Itís all the FUN of a fun, flowy downhill without all the terrifying parts, and all the challenge of a great XC ride without all the painful never-ending XC climb parts. Itís the best intro to mountain bike racing going! Come out and see!

    9:00 gather at LUNA tent in gear and ready to go. Bike check. Package pick up for Participants.
    9:15-11:30 Clinic with Catharine
    Breaking down Super D: The Start, The Run, The Finish. Itís a maximal effort from start to finish where a lot of attention needs to be paid to what happens in between. How do you enter corners to carry max speed, where do you accelerate to carry your speed over a climb into a dh section, how can you pump your bike to save your legs?
    Start Practice: Get the most from the gun.
    Cornering: The most important skill you can master
    Efficiency: Anticipating terrain changes and pumping your bike to build speed
    Dispelling myths on body position
    Trouble spots on the course, choosing lines, comfort on roll downs and drops.
    11:30-1:30 Quick break, grab a snack, ask questions, ask Catharine to watch you through a trouble section and get feedback!
    Do your practice runs. The minimal amount you can do to feel comfortable on the course without getting too tired. Ex: Roll one, tempo one
    1:00 - make your way to the race start
    1:30 - race start
    Take some time before your run to visualize it . How you want it to go, where youíll shift, step on the pedals, pump the bike.
    Warm up: Keep it simple. Enough to be warm, not enough to fatigue you. Use light gears
    Cool down between runs is important: Super easy spinning to flush toxins!
    Eat after your race within 30 minutes. Carbs and protein. We will have a post-race BBQ chicken for all attendees!
    Awards: Hang out and talk about the day, ask questions, and be sure to get a photo with Catharine.
