The thrill of competition is always exhilarating, but bicycle racing is even more exciting. There are many different styles of racing in cycling, but each offers the enjoyment of fusing mechanical and natural strength in just the right balance of finesse and technique. If you are interested in pursuing some adventure in bicycle racing, then here are a few tips to consider.
Contrary to what it may look like from the stands, bicycling is not an individual sport. Cycling teams are comprised of several different types of riders that each use their developed talents to advance the standing of the whole team. If you are looking into road racing, then you are going to want to search your local listings for any velos that may be open to new membership. This is the simplest way to find a group of like minded cyclists to train with and eventually form a team with.
If you do have the opportunity to road race individually, then you must be certain to practice riding in a pack. “Holding your line” is critical to the safety of pack riding as is recovery from high-speed wheel touches. Mountain bike racing offers more opportunities for individual racers.
