Our community plays a big part of our methodology. Aside from being a place where athletes can train, ride and race together, your peers add both support and accountability to your training
While being part of a community may not be something you’re looking for from a coaching relationship, we have always found that our athletes thrive in the CCNS communal environment – whether online or IRL. Of course, some of our athletes still prefer to train alone, but we welcome all CCNS athletes to take advantage of the opportunity to gain support from a like-minded community.
Discover how our community benefits your training below.
Backed by our CCNS coaches, our team is a community of athletes connected by the same common goal; pushing themselves to their physical peak. Any and all CCNS athletes are welcome! Join us as we rally for select events each month including:
