Last night was my first experience with cross. We have a local group that runs a training race every wednesday night and I was finally able to attend and did I have a blast! I've known how to do a cyclo cross dismount for years now, but I've never really figured out the remount, but last night I was able to do it perfect (no hop!!). I managed to surprise a few of our local cross racers by doing that.
I'm on my way to being hooked on this. My first race will be coming up in a couple of weeks, wish me luck!
