The Ultimate Cyclocross Barriers Skills Tutorial

The barriers are probably the most quintessential cyclocross thing in cyclocross. They’re most likely the thing that stood out the most when you saw a race for the first time. They’re also a major barrier (pun definitely intended) for first-timers because it involves the horror of dismounting, jumping, and remounting the bike at speed.

There are a ton of cyclocross skills and barrier technique videos out there but all of them leave an assumed element or two out forcing you to find another to answer your questions. I created this video to be the definitive tutorial, breaking down each movement, from beginning to end, without leaving anything out.*

HUGE thank you to “G” Schultz for running the barriers 100+ times and still agreeing to shoot again after I told him I screwed up his audio 🎙

MASSIVE thanks to Van Dessel Cycles for their support of #TheCXOff since day one.

DISCLAIMER: IF YOU LEARNED THIS DIFFERENTLY, CHECK YOUR TRIGGER AT THE DOOR. I’M NOT DECLARING YOUR WAY IS INCORRECT.

*[Ed. note: I left “crow-hop/stutter-step” out, but that long leading step covers that. Also forgot step-throughs. Basically, anything that involves a hyphen I forgot.]
