Improve your Cyclocross Mounts and Dismounts

The Cyclocross Mounts and Dismounts Course has launched!

Learn to dismount and clear Cyclocross Barriers then jump back on your bike without any stress, lost energy, or crashes!

This is a foundational skill that will help your cornering, standing, and balance as well as make any mount you do during the year, on any bike, smooth and efficient.

For only $19 you can gain access to the course (or $19 monthly gets you access to all the RLC Bike Skills courses).

Cyclocross Mounts & Dismounts Course Goes Live Thursday Sept 6th 2018

I am so excited for the launch of the ‘Cyclocross Mounts and Dismounts course’. It consolidates many of the drills I use to help clients learn to get on and off their bikes for cyclocross, mountain biking and other disciplines. It is also meant to help overcome bad habits and compensations that might be slowing you down after years of racing cyclocross.

Learning to Dismount and then Get back on your bike smoothly, is something that changes cycling profoundly. Mounts and Dismounts are essential skills that I believe transfers to many other areas of riding, such as cornering and wheel lifts.

3 Drills to Improve Balance on the Bike

This post will provide you with 3 drills to improve your cycling skills and balance. While they are not presented in the order I would always use and certainly a step (or three) beyond what a beginner may be comfortable doing they do provide you with some ideas and variations to scale back from, work towards or challenge yourself with today!

 

Covered today
1) The Outrigger – Putting a Foot Out for balance and to ‘dab’ versus falling over or putting out your arm
2) Ratcheting – use a partial pedal stroke and move your body around while STANDING
3) The bump and run – a fun challenge that progresses your ratchets and moves you towards the track stand

Let me know what you think of these 3 drills!

Learn to Log Hop – Three Drills to Try

 

This is a video with three drills to try that I find help riders break through plateaus in their progression towards Log Hops, Bunny Hops, and Jumping.

The Three Drills include:

  • An off-bike drill that helps you feel what it is like to push into the handlebar and front wheel
  • A manual practice focused on moving your hips down then back in an L shape
  • A front wheel ‘tap’ drill that is functional for getting over logs but takes the first off-bike drill and applies the concept of pushing into the bars into this ‘level 4’

For a progression of the 5 stages of log Hopping check out my video that Canadian Cycling Magazine produced HERE

Providence Cyclocross Festival 2014 – Links, Photos, Video

Providence was perhaps the best Cylocross race I have been at in terms of organizers planning for a festival and full weekend of events. With 1200+ racers and 8000+ spectators the numbers tell the story. Exiting courses, food vendors, and beer gardens make for a super weekend of spectating .

I wasn’t feeling super over the weekend but managed some mid pack finishes and enjoyed the beer garden jump and a few laps with Mike Garrigan on Day 2.

Paris to Ancaster / Gravel Grinder – 1 Week Out Tips

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EwKLaw5Yns]

My friends over at Paris to Ancaster wanted to know my thoughts about a week out from this big early season gravel grinder race.

Don’t Overdue it with training this weekend.

Build confidence with some key experiences (hard start, clipping in , hard hill after an hour or two of riding, riding with people, riding race bike)

Test your food, gear, bike and be ready to do work next weekend. Have a plan for each weather situation

prepare well and it is just about pedaling and having a great time.
