Last year, one of the #cyclocross skills I really lacked in was having good starts off the starting grid. Really, all my CX skills and fitness left a lot to be desired and still do, but hey, I was new to racing and new to sports. This year, I've been really happy with my starts (photo #1)! I'm not able to sustain the lead for very long, but it's fun to get the hole shot even for a few seconds 😊
Photo #2 shows me doing my least favorite skill - running. There was a lot of it at @chicrosscup#prrcx. I would really like to spend less time off the bike when things get hairy. Goals for next year.
