-Pop a front wheelie and land so that your front tire clears the log. -Quickly level the pedals and shift your weight forward. -Your back wheel should roll right over the log. Rik Allen [email@example.com] Or, when riding fast with toe clips, just hop the whole thing, bike level. Works at speed, up to about 1' depending on ability. Make sure you have space to comtrol the speed after the jump. Get it wrong and your wheels might be history though. When racing, if the log is too big to cross with 2H, you might be better off getting off the bike. A good cyclocross rider will unclip before the obstacle, swing one leg over behind the other, then when you get to the obstacle, one or two strides will get you over it. Then a controlled lunge back into the saddle (practise this _slowly_ first) and you are off again, never having dropped below 15mph.
