Shortish cyclocross ride last night. Quite a nice training loop actually, plenty of steps to run up, several “just about rideable” climbs and some fast tarmac sections. Despite there being a few events and races in between now and the 3 Peaks in September, I’ve decided that this race is going to be my main focus. Training-wise, that’s more running, more running uphill while shouldering the bike and lots and lots of riding the cx bike. Hopefully I’ll fit in a couple of local fell races and maybe a recce or two near the 3 Peaks themselves. The next 10 weeks are going to be ace.
I’ll be up for a look see nearer the time. The descent from Whernside is even more knarly now, that I do know.
Keep those recces ‘legal’ won’t you, eh? The run over Whernside’s better training than riding anyway (and saves you mending punctures just for training fun)
aye. My middle name’s “legal”.
I thought it was Xavier.
I wish it was.
I heard it was Alphonse. Maybe if the knee is up to it we can run Whernside and Ingleborough and I can show you what I laughingly describe as ‘lines’.
