For the last few months I wanted to give Cyclo Cross a go. Luckily enough I had the opportunity to do so on a Condor Bivio-X bike. I was able to race 1 event on the Bivio-X at Herne Hill, which I got second on the support race, I absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed how technical cross is, and it is not about being the strongest/faster rider, it is about knowing how to handle the bike throughout the whole course. I am not a cross expert, these are just my thoughts from my experience. I also enjoyed the adrenaline I had while racing and the fact that I was always thinking about the next turn, bump, steps or barriers, so I could take the best line or unclip at the right time.
Lets not forget, one of the best things about CX is the atmosphere at all the races. The races are really fun to watch and take part in, even though it is serious it feels more relaxed. My experience has made me really want to get stuck in next season.
