Snow/Ice Racing techniques
Tomorrow will be my 3rd cross race. The weather calls for 2-4 inches of snow on top of 2-3 already down with temps. of 24f. The course appears to be mainly flat with alot of grass humps. I just picked up some spikes for the shoes. Anybody have some tricks and techniques? Help me out.
Okay, so no answers. Race over. What did I learn? Spikes, low tire pressure, the soft snow sucks you in, lean the bike more than you think. Every one I spoke with had at least one crash. Bikes flying sideways all the time, wild race, frozen fingers and toes. Mid-pack finish 31 of 78. Season is done.
sounds like you had fun. Too bad the season's over - at least here in Ohio it is. Boo Hoo
