The off-season means different things for different riders. For some, it’s six weeks of boxsets, bingeing and beers after a season of severe dieting and training toward burnout.
Not so for Sepp Kuss.
The Coloradan climbing sensation spends his early winter riding trails, hiking up mountains, and adventuring to Colombia.
So why no slouching on the sofa and hiding away the bike? Because Kuss keeps his stoke for cycling 12 months a year by embracing a little of everything in moderation.
“I think some people start the season and they’re super-motivated after a total break because that’s their process. But I’m more motivated when I can actually do fun mountain bike rides in the summer and go on cool adventures all year,” Kuss told VeloNews.
