Woot! Woot! This year we are offering two race clinics for people new to racing mountain bikes. We will give you an introduction to the courses at Weds Night Worlds, explain how races work, share some racing tips and answer any questions you might have.

If you’ve never raced before, we’ll waive your registration for the race the day of the clinic. Yes, free racing your first night!


This clinic is designed to show anyone new to mountain bike racing how much fun we have at Wednesday Night Worlds and how everyone can participate. We look forward to introducing you to our inclusive Wednesday Night family. The clinics will be taught by Julie Robertson Zivin and Chris Rodde.

Dates and times:

June 1- 4-5pm at N Seatac Park – WOMEN/TRANS/FEMME ONLY Novice XC Race Clinic taught by Julie Robertson Zivin

June 29 – 4-5pm at N Seatac Park – Novice XC Race Clinic taught by Julie Robertson Zivin and Chris Rodde 

Please spread the word about this clinic! This is the perfect chance to invite your friends who’ve been considering joining you at WNWC (and your Mom… bring her too).  


Julie Robertson Zivin

Julie has been bike racing since 2006 when she started road racing as a newly divorced 37 yo mom of two young boys.  She transitioned into cyclocross and mountain bike racing.  Her first mountain bike racing was at Wednesday Night Worlds.  She is the 2019 cyclocross masters champion and enjoys racing both locally and more recently nationally now that her boys are in college.   Racing and playing bikes and being part of our cycling community has been an integral part of her life and sanity.

Chris Rodde

Chris started racing mountain bikes in the 90s. He moved to Seattle in 2001 and with the arrival of his two kids, stopped racing for about 10 years. In 2013, he rediscovered the joy of bike racing and has been racing mountain bikes and cyclocross ever since. In 2022, Chris helped to form Off Camber Productions which now owns Weds Night Worlds and MFG Cyclocross. The primary goal of Off Camber Productions is to grow the bike racing community in Washington by developing programs to encourage more women, juniors, BIPOC, LGBTQ bike riders to join the community.
