XC Racers – feast or famine?
I was going to take a bike to my parents but since the mrs has left me with the jeep which isntiny insideill jst take my runners and head to the woods tomorrow morning. Ive not reached that age yet where it all goes to my hips
Only going to be there tomorrow anyway. Back to the diy on boxing day….. At least my neighbour shouldnt hate me this year- no hilti gun knocking shit out the walls 🙂Posted 4 years agorichmtbguruMember
I always treat every day like a training day be it Christmas or not, you snooze you lose….get my drift..something I was taught in the paras was to cut all ties with what’s going on in society and focus on ‘ the job’ one day of binging and drinking can put you back a few week mentally and physically. This is the time of year to take advantage while the rest of the competition might be slacking off you can be taking the lead, if your as serious as I was 10 year ago while winning most of the races then you must not follow society’s regime and stick with your own, good luck and keep focused.Posted 4 years agoiaincSubscriber
hmmm, not a racer, but as an old guy quite studious about weight and fitness. Been off the bike since Sat 7th due a big crash, so fitness dissapearing, however due face injuries and eating awkwardness still 5 lbs down on precrash weight…. I am hoping to get back out on cx bike Boxing Day and build it up slowly and hoping that weight still stays lowish… The inability to chew much more than a potato will help 🙄Posted 4 years agodirtygirlonabikeMember
Dont racers have down time anymore?
Yes, but usually depends when your season starts / ends. I’m in the build period now so will be training like its just another day, but I like training and it wouldn’t be Xmas without getting out on the bike! I’d be out riding even if I wasn’t racing. 🙂
