Many of us can only dream of taking a week to attend a top-level cyclocross camp with some of the best coaches and top talent. Thankfully, through a few videos from MontanaCrossCamp, we can live vicariously through the fortunate and talented youth attendees as they work on some unique drills to develop their skills and confidence before cyclocross season arrives.
A few days ago many of you enjoyed watching some of the nation’s best youth work on their dismounts and remounts, and two days later, a video of diverse ways to tackle hairpin turn running. Today we’ve got a video of a unique two-rider drill on cornering on and off the bike. The goal, just as with racing, is for the second racer to pass the first, and the first racer to stay ahead, as seen in the video below:
The drill looks to be challenging and a lot of fun. Could you integrate that into your next cyclocross practice or group ride?
MontanaCrossCamp would not be a cyclocross camp without some run-up practice, and attendees certainly got some early season, leg-burning hill climbs as seen in the video below:
We first heard about MontanaCrossCamp from Geoff Proctor in our interview with the cyclocross coach after his European camp with Sven Nys. Proctor along with Chris McGovern, Tobin Ortenblad and Scott Herzig are gathered with a bunch of talented Junior cyclists in Montana to get a start on their cyclocross season prep.
Do these videos make you feel that you’re not quite ready for the season? See Cyclocross Magazine’s Training Tuesday series of articles by coaches like Adam Myerson, Chris Mayhew and Kenneth Lundgren to help you prepare for your best cyclocross season yet.
