Imagine this scenario: you’re at a bar with a buddy and the debate starts on who is the better cyclist, a champion freerider, or a champion cyclocrosser? While this may not be the exact match up you may have dreamed up, it is exactly what Red Bull is featuring in a series they call the Crossroads.

Take two athletes who perform in somewhat similar disciplines and put each rider in each other’s shoes. In this case it is freerider Aaron Chase, and cyclocrosser Tim Johnson both of which ride for Cannondale. Watch as each rider gets to coach the other through their respective disciplines which surprisingly or not, they both do pretty well.

Check out part two after the break, which may include wall riding into a foam pit on Zipp Carbon Tubies and back flipping a cross bike!
