This is my second season racing Cx. I got into last year when I missed the entire summer with a broken hand. However, this year I raced a full schedule. It started in March with a crit. series that consisted of six races. I was our sprinters lead out man, so these were full on early races. That sprinter ended up winning the series. Following the crit series were a couple of epic road races then right into mtn season in which I race Cat. 1. In addition I competed in the Mt. Washington Hill climb and the Vermont 50 mtb race.
On average I raced two weekends a month.
Except in July, when I came down off the first peak after Mt. Washington.
Then cross season hit. It's been just about every weekend since Oct. My last race is this weekend 12-5-10 and I'm cooked. Done, fried....
My question is this. For those of you that are serious about racing cross. When do you start your race season in earnist. I'm already pushing the start of winter training out one month realizing I won't be in top shape for the spring crits. but I'm questioning the wisdom of trying to race March - December again.
