A race day plan for noobs

This is my third season of cross. Racing as a complete noob is not a distant memory for me. Most of the comments are my own opinions based on things that I found worked best for me. Some other ideas are from a classic video called “A taste of cross.” I hope that you noobs find this plan to be helpful and a means to eliminate some stress on race day.

Another installment of Gutterpan. I wanna check out the sketches.

Nice work guys
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
