Riding tips


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I have a list of different techniques I try and work on. Heres the list, any other major things you guys think I should add or even take away?

-Keep Back square with bike

-Keep Elbows up at all times

-Keep Head above bars

-Wieghting outside peg during corners

-Land leaning forward and on the gas

-Stand as much as possible

-Avoid braking in corner

-Let bike lean down farther then you in corner

-Look where you want to go not where you are

-Push off pegs to stay in the front of the bike.

Keep in mind im not that fast been riding for around 8 years and have just decided to start racing next year...

That's a pretty good list.  I'll add -Get your inside corner leg way UP / forward; don't let it just dangle off the peg.

 

One of the things I find helpful to me and my son (who I swear has ADD ha ha) is to only focus practicing on one skill / technique at a time.  I will usually pick one thing that I see when he rides and say "next session out, practice only THIS".

Haha, I completly agree with learning one tip at a time ive tried to focus on a few at a time but its just to much to remember while riding. Ill be sure to add your tip in there thank you.

Not sure if you only ride on the track, but the best advice I received for woods riding is:

-Grip the bike with your knees.

-Look far ahead, not 6' in front of the bike, the faster you ride the further ahead you must look.

Like I siad I mostly ride track but it seems like the tips you gave would apply to both. Thank you
