The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 9.26.16. “Back from Vegas. Thankfully.”

Howdy folks,

We’re back!

Vegas was… well, it was Vegas. Interbike seems to be kind of on it’s last legs, and of all the shows I’ve been to (a lot of them) this one had the lowest energy, and what looked to be the lowest turnout.

If you’ve been thinking that you’d like to go to the bike industry trade show someday, make it soon. I honestly don’t know how much longer the event will have any relevancy, or even exist in the form we know it. Seems a bit like a dinosaur looking for a tar pit to lay in.

Having said that, there were definitely some things worth seeing, and some events worth attending over the course of the week, and CX Vegas was almost certainly the highlight.

Great racing in the women’s race, and an amazing performance in the mens. Wout is an extraterrestrial.

Hopefully I’ll get some more content from the Vegas trip up here in the near future, and if I can find a YouTube link to the races, I’ll post that as well. If you happen to have one, please post it in the comments!

In the meantime, how about some of the action from the Trek Cup?






If you happen to be trainer-bound today, perhaps you can watch (part of) it while you do today’s…

Recovery Spin – 

– Get on your bike. Roll out into the street – or into your living room if you’re on the turbo watching the vid – and just spin around for an hour. Or more. Or less. Whatever it takes.

– 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 easily and aimlessly. At a certain point, your legs will start to loosen up.

– When that happens, turn around and go home.

–  If you’re doing these on the trainer, same deal. Just spin. No hard efforts, just make the legs go around in circles in a small gear.

– Follow up with as much relaxation as you can. Eat, stretch, and put your legs up. Get a massage if possible.




What’s that you say? You’d kinda’ like to have a cycling coach help figure this stuff out for you? Check out…
