But a break from competition won’t mean a wholesale hiatus from cycling. I might even spend some time on the mountain bike in November, looking for further improvements in my technical skills. This year I felt like I had the fitness to perform reasonably well at the next level in WORS, but sometimes my technical skills seemed inadequate even for a beginning racer. How well I develop those skills will have an enormous bearing on my results when I resume racing next May.
