In this tradition of video genius, we’re stoked to present #LIKEAVOS, Bill’s homage to perhaps the greatest contemporary bike racer we know, the incomparable Marianne Vos.
I give you the premier edition of #LIKEAVOS.
In episode 1.0 of LIKEAVOS, we are in Tabor for the second round of the UCI cyclocross World Cup. The course is dry and grassy and the day is hot. Momentum is key on this course that features several tight turns and short climbs but not many technical elements. We focus on the planks, cornering, a steep staircase, and maintaining calm in the face of adversity.
LIKEAVOS 1.0 is presented by Skills, Drills and Bellyaches: A Cyclocross Primer, available at www.cyclocrossbook.com. Get fast by reading. Seriously.
