The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.30.13. “Kiss your Ace goodbye”

Howdy folks,

Well, heck. It’s Monday.

Back to work.


Hopefully you had a great weekend, and enjoyed some cyclocross racing, if not on the bike, on the screen.

There was some great racing going on the last few days, including an amazing ride by The Kannibal yesterday in Diegem…

Sven kissed his long-time sponsor Colnago goodbye as only he could. Chapeau.

Phew. Just watching that performance can get ‘ya tired.

To say nothing of all the hard riding the last couple of days.

Only one answer to that, a nice, relaxing…

Recovery Spin…

– Get on your bike. Roll out into the street, and just spin around for an hour.

– Really small gear, no hard efforts – heck, no medium effort.

– Spin. You’re looking to move your legs around in circles, almost like there is no chain on the bike.

– The idea is to get your body moving, flush the systems out, and speed your recovery.

– Just get out on the road and spin aimlessly. At a certain point, your legs suddenly feel better.

– As soon as that happens, turn around, go home, eat, stretch, and put your legs up.



More hard work tomorrow…
