It’s been a while.
One year is a long time and last time I really rode my CX bike was at National Champs in november last year. Now is the time when there are plenty of training races, training opportunities and also big real races around to choose from. I won’t be able to compete at Nationals this year as I’ll be in Kenya on a running camp. At the moment I’m in a really heavy swim block to prepare for next year with a big emphasis to improve and shape up my stroke.
I had a window yesterday, a bike session, some good weather and a CX training race on offer. It’s the most fun thing I have done in a while.
The combination of breathing my lungs out, having to focus 100% on what I’m doing and racing others in a beautiful autumn Â sun beats a lot of other things.
It scares me Â (a little) and I don’t have the best skills (understatement…) but I really really like it…
Anna Eide-Jensen was out on the course snapping some pictures yesterday. Here is a select few from her album.
