Barriers! The Ultimate Cyclocross Skills Tutorial | The Breakdown

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.]
