Practice course ideas
Training for my first season of 'cross has been going pretty well, but I'm looking for some ideas to throw in, specifically in the realm of setting up my own little practice course at a local park.
What I've done so far is a short route that takes maybe 4 minutes to ride which includes a section of trail, some open grass, a fairly long & steep runup, and two practice barriers. I think I'll also add some cones to practice some quick 180 turns, both on and off the bike.
Anything else I should try? Put the barriers at the top of the runup, then at the bottom.. maybe on an off-camber spot.. basically anything to make riding the course a b**ch, right?
Thanks for any ideas.
