Coaching Tip from Brian Conant

"Most of you probably know this, if not:

If the barrier section is slow going into it, or you are doing a run-up, once setting the bike down, do not immediately remount.  Instead take 4-5 sprint steps to get some speed back up.  That way when you remount you will have some momentum.

Also, before dismounting, shift to an easier gear.  This will allow you to accelerate back to speed quicker.

Cross Rules!!!"

Thanks Brian....
