Hi Brain cool video. Can you talk a little about what you are doing to transfer your weight and throttle operation at the moment you hit the vertical lip changing direction from up hill to landing on level ground. Thanks

Mr Dion,

First and formost you want to have to right amount of momentum. Without the momentum it will be hard to relax and stay balanced.

I keep my weight forward and position my feet to the forward part of the pegs to lock in my legs.

Since I have the correct momentum and body position when I get to the vertical lip. I am able to relax and let off the throttle. This will help bring the front end down. At this time I am transferring my forward weight to the center of the bike. This way when I land I will be centered on the bike with a good pivot position to move accordingly to my impact of landing. This way when I land I am able to immediately react without falling off balance.

Keeping the toes tight will help grip the bike.

The key is to be relaxed otherwise you will toss the bike away.

Thanks, I put your advise to work last Sunday at the Rampart Range Poker Run. 60 miles of whoops, trees, roots and near vertical rock ledges. I literally thought and did what you said with my foot position and with a relaxed mind and body. What a blast, thanks for the advise.
