Maybe you've seen some of the series, maybe not. But, does it have appeal?


So, the question... Should I plan to do it next season? These videos take about 8 hours a week to put together. What would make them better for trainer, motivation, CX evangelism? You guys see a ton. What's next?

Duuuuude... why do you hit the brakes every time you enter the sand?? You're robbing yourself of precious speed!

So right! I even yell at myself. I need to just go out and bomb through some sand at higher and higher speeds to break the fear. When I see that lip, I get spooked that I'll bury the wheel and endo. Saw some guys do that this week again. I am a wuss, but your criticism is noted.

Rock back and power through it. Keep the weight off the front through the entire thing.

Great job on the video! Fun to watch, and I found myself watching a few of them. I score all of our local CX races, and help set up some of the courses. The only racing I get to see is at the finish line, so it is cool to see it from on the bike. And yes, the Master's are a fast bunch!
