Cyclocross Program


Who We Are

Since 2009, the mission of Red Kite Coaching has been to make individualized and holistic performance solutions accessible to cyclists. We offer a variety of coaching, nutrition, and training services to help a wide range of individuals and groups reach their goals. We value the importance of making these services available to those who choose to invest in themselves and pursue excellence.

Starting in 2016, we began supporting a regional (Ohio Valley) cyclocross racing program and partnering with the Lady Gnar Shredders, a Columbus-based development racing team for women, to increase access for and support the participation of new racers through instructional clinics.

  • Promotion of the Red Kite Beach Party Cyclocross Race, Part of the Cap City (Central Ohio) Cyclocross Series

  • The development of a race-day expo that showcases team/organizational partners, products, and services

  • Support for Red Kite athletes competitive at regional UCI events (6+)

  • Expanded presence in local and regional events

  • Foster an inclusive culture in the cyclocross community by providing resources and instructional opportunities for new and experienced athletes
