I've entered a MTB race in March.
57kms and around 2000m of elevation gain (3 climbs)
The course description details at least 2 river crossings!
I've raced mtb before, but never had to cross any rivers - can any one help me out with techniques for "shouldering" the bike and getting through the river? - will be summer with low water levels (hopefully) and I expect the water to be below hip height.
Watched a few YT clips and there seems to be a variety of approaches....with low levels, lifting the whole bike up above the head and wading through seems effective.
No, I can't ride the course before hand as it's on private land and only opened up once a year for this race.
Thanks if you can help me out.
