July 29, 2016 (Longmont Colorado, USA)– APEX Coaching and Clif Bar CrossVegas announced a partnership that brings world-class athlete coaching service to the worldwide cyclocross community. The Boulder Colorado based Apex Coaching, led by Neal Henderson and Grant Holicky will be the official coaching service of CrossVegas, the first leg of the Telenet UCI Cyclocross World Cup scheduled for Wednesday, September 21 in Las Vegas.

As a part of this collaboration, cross competitors will receive training tips, insider info on the CrossVegas course and how to best prepare for the season. In addition to expert guidance, racers will get an inside look at how some of the APEX Coaching athletes train and prepare for UCI cyclocross races in the States and around the world.

“This is a really great boost for those racers who don’t yet have a coach or want to get specific tips tailored to CrossVegas. They’ll get a few weeks’ head start on preparing for the tough USA Cycling or Wheelers & Dealers race at CrossVegas,” stated Brook Watts, CrossVegas director.

Apex coach Grant Holicky commented, “The course at CrossVegas requires some special skills and preparation that is outside of the normal cross prep. In addition, we will dig into the key points onto which every cyclocross racer should focus.”

Watts continued, “What many don’t realize is that in addition to being a coach to world caliber cross racers, Grant is a racer himself. He competes at CrossVegas annually and has won the winner’s jersey for the USA Cycling race before. So he’s got racer credibility when it comes to cross.”
