The Little Everglades Ranch on Sunday, Sepetember 9th promises to be the center of the Florida Cyclocross universe when Josh Thornton hosts a cyclocross clinic in advance of his return to the national cyclocross scene. Thornton, a former pro with both Toyota-United and Kodak/Sierra Nevada, raced a limited schedule in cyclocross in 2011, but has big plans for his return to a full UCI Cyclocross calendar in 2012.

The clinic starts at 2pm at a location synonymous with Florida Cyclocross, The Little Everglades Ranch. Thornton knows the ranch well as he won the 2011 State Championship at the venue and he will be sharing his knowledge with racers of all abilities – mountain bikers and first timers are highly encouraged to attend. Thornton will lead a clinic that will cover a variety of disciplines important to cyclocross such as barriers, starts and technical riding. (more…)
