School's in session! Click on the images below to learn more about the skills needed to survive a cyclocross race.
THE START
DISMOUNTING
CARRYING THE BIKE
Cyclocross 101 Training Tip: While practicing your other cyclocross skills, spend some extra time running with the bike on your shoulder. Many riders complain about a sore shoulder after the first few races. By getting your body used to running while shouldering a bike, you won't have to worry so much about soreness. Another trick is to wear two jerseys to provide a little additional padding. Some people even pad the toptube with pipe insulation.
