The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Monday, 12.19.16. “Bonkers!”

Howdy folks,

There’s a ton of new stuff up on the for sale page, including a garage’s worth from ZMD. Check it out.

Well, it’s Monday. I’m guessing you know what’s on tap for today.

Yup. We’re going for a…


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.


Monday videos!

We’ve got some good ones today!

Sunday’s race at the Citadel of Namur was a doozy. Wout makes enough bad mistakes to submarine anyone’s chances at winning, but puts in a Terminator-like performance to crawl out of the furnace and make it a race.


Meeusen bike-handles his way back on to the stronger guys over and over again.


Pauwels keeps plugging away, quietly getting closer and closer to that big win.

Well, ok. That’s not bonkers.

Still, this race is bonkers.






Speaking of great racing, the Women’s contest was no less fantastic.

Go Katka!
