As a result of C-19, we found out yesterday that the highly competitive Ohio Valley CX series has been cancelled for this year . I’m holding out hope that the more grassroots low-key local series will be able to go forward, or that there may be a couple race weekends this fall, but I’m mentally preparing for the inevitable.
According to my plan, I’m about 6 weeks from my peak CTL and have already begun including skill sessions. However, with a high likelihood of no CX this fall (at least in my region), I’m trying to figure out how to get the most out of myself. CX is kind of unique in that it doesn’t exist outside of a racing environment. You can always do a solo gravel or MTB simulation race but CX not so much! I want to use my skills and fitness, and peaking for Strava segment hunting isn’t especially appealing. So what do you guys recommend?
