Weekend ‘cross forecast & Friday Poll: Muddy with a risk of awesomeness

Looking at the forecast for this weekend’s Alberta provincial ‘cross championships, looks like you Alberta types might finally get your jerseys dirty.

Meanwhile, out East, we will be sampling  what the new course has to offer in the picturesque village of Perth Ontario.

Which leads me to this week’s  Friday Poll: Muddy corner edition.  In the figure below, what is the best line for the rider to take through the soggy, muddy corner?  Bear in mind the following: it is not a high speed corner (you enter at mid-speed and get slower as you exit the corner), it is soft (wheels sinking into 3cm deep ruts), the edges are less chewed up than the middle, and the corner trends slightly uphill (meaning that traction isn’t great and you definitely have to remain seated).

  1. I would disregard option C if you are racing with other people. Cutting into someone’s line will definitely end in a fist fight 😉
