I like 2x20s on dirt; I head to a local park and make a mile or so circuit with lots of turns but no real obstacles (things that require lots of speed loss or a dismount). Usually do a couple starts as well with a sprint for a first corner or a sprint into 3-8 min effort.

Then I ride the easier mountain bike trails and finish with 20 or 30 mounts and dismounts at various speeds over an obstacle.

How about you?

I've found the best training for CX is to simulate race efforts. In the past I've been lucky enough to have a local course available for training, which was perfect. They even held training races once a week. However, I have moved and am now looking for mountain trails in my area that are suitable for CX training. I may have to split up my fitness training and my skills training if I can't find anything to hop over and/or dismount for or terrain that is challenging enough.
