Cyclocross is the antithesis of my usual cycling endeavours. The cross races are short in duration (an hour or less) and distance (today's race was only about a dozen miles) and the effort is beyond my ideal threshold for enjoyment. Being that said, I always struggle with the transition to cross. This year was no exception. Now that I've got my first official race (Skyview Classic in Norfolk) under my belt I'm happy to report that I'm excited for more.
