In episode 1.0 of LIKEAVOS, we are in Tabor for the second round of the UCI cyclocross World Cup. The course is dry and grassy and the day is hot. Momentum is key on this course that features several tight turns and short climbs but not many technical elements. We focus on the planks, cornering, a steep staircase, and maintaining calm in the face of adversity.
LIKEAVOS 1.0 is presented by “Skills, Drills and Bellyaches: A Cyclocross Primer,” available at cyclocrossbook.com. Get fast by reading. Seriously.
