Here’s my video from last weekend’s SoCalCross race, Storm the Beach, which was just north of Oceanside, CA.
As you’ll see in the video, the big take away lesson for me was the importance of keeping the bike moving forward. I noticed there were little sections during the race where I was coming to a complete stop before starting up again.
Even if that complete stop only happened for a split second, I was still slowing myself down.
Even so, I was stoked to race on a course that was new to me and have my family there.
The next race should require some different skills and tactics. Velocity Cross in Chino is generally flatter and it’s a power course. Think grassy turns, bumpy terrain, and faster average speeds. I’m curious to see if we’ll stay in a group, if we’ll have a sprint finish, or how the weather will be.
Thanks for reading and watching!
