More CX Skils videos. But not just videos of pros doing something quickly with off the cuff explanations. Videos of good racers who are GREAT teachers, i.e. showing a dismount full speed, then at practice speed, explaining the movements. Otherwise, keep up the excellent work!
Reader Requests: What Do You Want in the Off-Season
With the off-season well under way, we wanted to elicit opinions from our readers as to what you would like to see online at cxmagazine.com from now through September. So here’s your chance to post in the comments any mechanical or training questions you might have, requests for interviews with specific riders, suggestions for gear we should review, races you’d like to find out more about, et cetera.
Please let us know below in the comments what kind of content you’d like to see in coming months, because we know the off-season can get boring and if you’re anything like us, you’re counting down the days until the next cyclocross race. Until then, we’ll be doing the best we can to give you a cyclocross fix on a daily basis, and the best way for us to do that is by hearing from you about what you’d like to be reading!

...and bar stem seatpost shootout more cheap bike set ups and a walk through of what to expect on your first race...
Mo reviews- saddles, brakes, disc equipped rides, shoes, gloves, and keep the tire and wheel reviews coming. Some normal human training regimes, core and strength exercises, yoga moves, nutrition advice...
I would like to see more pro rider bio shorts. Including height and weight.. what they eat.. how many hours a week they train. Some tips from them. Keep up the good work!
I agree with cmh and would like a longer season as well - but I'd start sooner, like mid August. I'd like Cyclocross Magazine to call for more larger sized bikes, too! Love the reviews, especially of products. Also would like to know about Nationals - when chumps can race, about watching.
How about coffee brewing and cocktail mixing for serious freds, Pro kiss and tell secrets, Adult embrocation application techniques, Hangover pick me ups for raceday, Fashion do's and dont's for for the style-conscious (rhetorical, eh?) 'crosser and music recommendations to whip you into a fury before you hit the starting line-up.
I always enjoy the articles about training and scheduling to prepare for the season.
For 2012 with the variety of disc brake setup increasing almost daily, updates of both the pros and cons as well as continued discussions of retrofitting non-disc bikes.
Also is there any lattitude for 650b bikes in CX, is this a trend that may take off?
I would like to know what tires and pressures ( if they will say ) the pro's choose for particular conditions/terrain.
Off-season change #1...make the off-season shorter. CX season is already too short. Kickoff should be Halloween racing and we should shut it down on April Fools.
