Bruise season

DDCX skills wrap-upYesterday saw my second episode of ‘cages on, cages off’ for the year – otherwise known as cx skills practice coming up to bruise season.

The Dirty Deeds Cyclocross gang ran a women’s skills session in April and a unisex session yesterday, with tips from the DDCX crew and Lewis Rattray (cx world cups and world champs). The sun was out and riders were happily playing in the park, refining dismounts, remounts, barrier clearing (mostly) and shouldering (hence cages off), followed by tyre pressure talk.

Of course bruise season also means it’s time to start buying lottery tickets again, in aid of a lighter, dedicated cross bike so I can leave the cages off most of the time.

Roll on cross season!
