Cyclocross 2009 -- The plan

Mike, in 2006. At Highbridge.

I had some lofty goals for racing CX this year. My plan was thwarted by the IPA. I am hoping to do a couple races this year in the rookie class again, as I can't imagine 45 minutes of torture that the B class requires. Thirty minutes is my threshold at the moment and that's what the rookie class races. Even though it feels like I'm going to die, I know it will be fun. It's such a weird thing, cx.

My "training:" I'm riding the high drive trails most mornings. I make a point of taking the descents all the way to the bottom, so that I'm forced to climb back up. I need to spend some time practicing obstacles too.

Vertical Earth in Coeur d'Alene is hosting clinics and trial races on Wednesday nights during the month of September. Web page here.

Here's the Inland NW schedule:

  • 10/11 - CDA
  • 10/18 - Liberty Lake
  • 10/25 - Seven-mile
  • 10/31 - Walla Walla
  • 11/1 - Walla Walla
  • 11/8- Ephrata
  • 11/15 - Seven-mile
  • 11/22 - CDA

More details on the Emde site.

Hehe, just noticed a photo of me in the blog. Somehow I have a knack for making 'cross look "not fun", but believe me it is :)

Have a great 'cross season Spokane. It's on!
