Position before entering corner or berm

Recommended Posts

Hello, i've seen and read that you have to stand and lean back when braking for a corner or berm. Did i get that correct? What's the reason for this technique? I am guessing so that the rear tyre wont slide?

When your braking the front end will compress. You lean back to balance the bike back out and to keep yourself in a central position.
