Want to start a group to practice CX skills- Canberra

Postby Macca_CX » Fri Aug 29, 2014 2:03 pm

Hi
Is there anyone out there in Canberra who would like to form a group to start practicing cx skills in the hope of competing in comps next season? I have average skills that I have picked up from a cx book and off Youtube. I am hoping that we can learn from one another and share tips while at the same time having fun and a bit of a laugh.
I was thinking it would be an informal group and happy to hear other people's input if interested.
Thanks

Hi - long time lurker, first time poster!

I have just built up a CX bike and being fairly new I would be keen if something was put together.

Cheers.

Hey guys, copy some youtube clips and take them with you on a laptop or something so you can watch a drill and then complete it. The Bart Wellens ones are pretty cool but there is tons of useful clips.

I'm interested. I've done maybe 10 days CX racing and I notice that other guys at my (mediocre) level have now caught or passed me in terms of their skills!
There are many types of racing cyclists. There is the sprinter, the rouleur, the stagiaire, the danser, the descender.... sadly, I'm a mediocre. :-(

Sorry sent a-wall for a while.
The new CX series in Canberra is kicking off in November.
I think first event is on the 15th.
Anyone able to meet up next weekend or sometime during the week in the evening to start practicing?
I'm pretty flexible on weekends and possibly weekday evenings, work permitting.
Also which side of Canberra are you all on so we can organise a location
I'm in the north.

So did you guys manage to get along to Round 1 of the CX series? There was a pretty good turnout, I had a crack at C grade which was great!
