There are many reasons to go for cross. Your bike skills get an up-grade, which propels you from laterne rouge to tete de la course. If you ever have competed in cycling events or even races, you know situations: handlebar to handlebar, elbow to elbow and so on. In cyclo cross, you learn to balance your bike and saving situations instead of crashing. You learn to corner and brake, which helps a lot in road racing. Furthermore, you will “meet” the stress profile of a cross race and benefit from it – in other words: you enter new peaks where you haven’t been before. So, do you go for cross?
