Make the most out of your Cross practice sessions

Cross races can be won and lost in the turns. Riding smooth and maintaining flow will not only keep your speeds high and prevent crashes, but will also save energy…lots of energy.

Group training sessions provide a fun way to accomplish the high intensity efforts necessary for building the fitness necessary for Cyclocross racing, as well as an opportunity to fine tune race skills and bike set up with out the pressure of a race environment.

The multiple race formats at the Columbus Cross Practice allows riders the opportunity to experiment with tire pressures, different lines, and braking techniques. Not only can you hone your own skills but if you keep your eyes open you might just be able to steal a few ideas out of the advanced riders' playbooks.

Race clean. Ride dirty.
