Body Position

Your foundations begin here.

Beginning from the same position allows the mind and body to learn patterns, creating muscle memory and autonomous movements.

Riding a bike with well-tuned suspension sure feels special but the real secret sauce comes from using your own body to stay smooth.

 

Absorbing impacts, and applying pressure at the right times is a great way to generate speed and maximise traction.
