I've heard from a few places that a lot of the top woods riders train at mx tracks for various reasons - a few listed below. - There's an MX track around nearly every corner, but not always trails. - It's easier to focus on a specific skill at a track as opposed to the woods since the track repeats, you can dial in that skill much quicker. - When you want to take a break, the truck (and cooler) is a short ride away. - It's easier to gauge speed increases on a track vs. woods. I'm sure there are a few more reasons I've heard that I'm forgetting. What doesn't map for me is that in the woods, the turns are usually (almost always) more tight and technical than a mx track. I really want to hear others opinions on drilling/practicing at a track to help increase your speed in the woods. Anyone?
