Cyclocross has become by far, my favourite discipline of racing. Fast, furiously difficult and fun as all hell. Earlier in the season, I got to tag along with Rob from Sri Importing and Team H&R Block’s Aaron Schooler on cyclocross training ride. Aaron gave us both some first rate 1 on 2 coaching (including the dismount and re-mount – which I hate to admit it, Aaron, but I’ve still got that extra hope in there…) and he was gracious enough to also do a video interview with me for Bikeridr. In that interview we spanned a surprising amount – too much to cram into one web-post, so I’ll release the interview in stages. This segment #1, on CX race strategy.
