125 ft table.. im SCARED.

Recommended Posts

They are putting in a 125ft table at our local track, which is going to hold the NZ nationals. And I am scared, what do you do? Lol, I am a fast A rider.. The biggest jump i have ever done is about 80 ft, but 125 is massive. Any help will be greatly appreciated... like how to jump something this big? :applause::bonk:

Its great to see an A rider with caution. If it doesn't throw you very high, maybe you can keep increasing your distance until you feel comfortable to go for it. If someone else jumps it first, ask them if you can follow them over it. Just keep in mind that at the end of the day, no one is going to care or remember who jumped what. Respect for a jump will keep you around in the sport longer than most. Good Luck.

The first time I jumped the 120' quad at my track, I just gunned it. Just get the feel of the face, keep jumping farther each lap until your suspension can't take it then, if you can, follow someone that is jumping it and get your speed right and hit it.

I'm not trying to insult you or anything, but do they not have jumps in New Zealand? I've seen so-called "D" riders do bigger than 80 ft. jumps.

I've seen that too, plenty of times. Then the little buggers can't get out of their own way in the corner after the jump. Lack of common sense does not equal skill.

I am a 125B rider and they put in a 97 foot tabletop at my local track, I just jumped farther each lap then I hit it fourth gear wide open on my CRF250R and made it. Now I do it every lap

the biggest i've done is like 60. 125 is diffently big. i say follow somebody into it. i do that with basically all new jumps. Also, you HAVE to COMMIT to the jump, if your going for it don't you dare back off and make 110. you'd die.

Just remember to be ready to hit the back brake when you get a little looped

when u finally do it, tell us how it felt.

wait for someone with the same bike as u, or similar, to do the jump. if they crash and end up dead.... dont do it.

"A" riders have this type of experience or at least know how to approach the situation...

Is it a flat table? Like, the edge is the same height as the middle?

If it's a pure flat, true table, don't be afraid! Anyone with any skill should be able to do a table. Yeah, it's far, but what could go wrong? Seriously?

So what if you come up a little short!? It's not a double, so you can't case anything.

Rule #1 of tables, keep the front end high if you know you're not going to land on the downslope or overjump. If you are close to the edge, nose low.

If its all flat i would just say keep jumping and going farther and farther and remember about how fast you were going when u cleared it

NZ is one of the best places for Natural hits.

Anyways, but remember that D-grade Riders are new to racing. Most of them use to always jump. When they went riding, jumping is all they would practise.

Good to read about people thinking about safety, not ego.

If you can find a rider that can easily clear the jump, agree to have him lead you over the jump. That way you can see how much speed you need to clear the jump. "Getting towed" might be a good way to learn.

Good luck, stay safe!
