Cyclocross - Men B Season Report

I don't know about you, but I get excited at the close of the road racing season. Not because I'm tired and burned out, but because the start of the cyclocross season is near.

Cyclocross is basically 45-60 minutes of lactic acid buildup and oxygen deficit with technical turns, mud pits and barriers in your way. You can learn a lot about yourself and your bike in a CX race. You will learn about your own limits, your bike's limits, and how close you are willing to push those limits in order to get the best result. You will also be sore in places you never knew possible.
