I know this is a bit random but does anyone get bad windburn from xc? And have any good ideas to stop it? The last couple of times I've competed I've ended up looking like rudolph the red faced reindeer! I'm sure it's not sunburn (there def wasn't sun sadly) and am starting to think I should wear a mask or something....help?!

I've never had windburn before, but I have had watery eyes and sore ears from the wind whilst out competing. I have no idea how to stop windburn though, I no racing goggles or just normal riding goggles are quite good. Sorry I couldn't really help.
