Handslings are an interesting technical skill I had to learn! Along with that was the understanding of how to move around the teams that are doing a handover. Despite there being about 18 riders, most learning these skills for the first time, the session went well, with no collisions at all. It requires a lot of thinking and observation, just to avoid problems in a training environment, but I hope that we get the chance to develop further and have a couple of semi competitive races next time. I'll keep you posted.
In the meantime, here is a video of the other, experienced group doing a decent handsling - check out the riders in red, white and blue. Or to see a classic race, try this YouTube link of Wiggo and Cav.
