From the sand pits, barriers, donut hole hand ups, and off camber turns - my first season of cyclocross was definitely a fun and memorable one!
My first time up to Guanella Pass was a few years ago, riding in a car with some friends. I remember telling myself, someday I'm going to ride up this road on my bike. Well, that someday happened last Sunday at the Westbound & Down Guanella Pass Hill Climb race.
Sounds pretty simple, doesn't it? All you have to do is just show up. But there are so many things that potentially get in the way. Time and planning (or lack thereof). Traffic. Motivation. Intimidation.
