Velopress Cyclo-Cross Training and Techniques
Cyclocross is a fun and challenging mix of road and off-road racing on a closed circuit with obstacles such as sandtraps, berms, and barriers.
Countless cyclists are discovering one of Europe's favourite autumn & winter pastimes to be much more than off-season training.
From Simon Burney, the expert on cyclocross racing and training, comes a fully updated and expanded edition, exploring every aspect of this increasingly popular sport.
Beginners and veterans alike will benefit from comprehensive explanations of cyclocross racing techniques and tactics. Riders will improve basic skills of climbing, descending, and bunny-hopping over obstacles with step-by-step descriptions and photographs of the pro riders at work. Burney covers how and when to dismount and remount a bike, as well as how to tackle tough course conditions from snow to sand to mud. With the latest on equipment and bike fit, newcomers will be off to a good start with the proper gear.
A newly expanded training section describes how to train on a monthly, weekly, and daily basis, with hints for on- and off-road training as well as run training and training indoors. Burney's expertise is complemented with tips from some of the best riders in contemporary cyclocross.
