The CX Picture Thread
« on: October 05, 2011, 12:58:28 AM »
Post pictures of you racing cyclocross.

I'm new to cx and have been learning all kinds of things lately.. like how to ride in sand, dismount/mount, etc.

Here are a couple from tonights practice race..

The sand owning me (it's funny, for some reason):

(somehow I recovered and promptly passed t-shirt/mtb guy)

Me owning the sand:

(eventually figured it out - shifted and spin through it much better than the mashing I was doing before)

About to jump the barrier and possibly looking forward to the end of the race:

On the sand, get back on the very back of your saddle.  You want your front tire light and your weight on the rear.  Bike will track much better.

some photos I think I already posted in the road race thread:







Looking forward to racing in Sacramento this weekend.

Been the same way here lately! It'll be 85 for the cx practice races tonight. Hopefully there will be some muddy section(s) from the rain this past weekend.

Pic from today's race. Violating rule #82 w/ my non-fitting arm warmers. It was effin cold, but I didn't want to crash and mess up my new Craft warmers..

First cross race of the season down.  Would have done well but I crashed a few times.  My skills are lacking!
