Do you find that you’re stumbling as soon as the trails get a bit more technical? This technique from Matt Legg-Bagg at Pedal Progression will train your body to get into good habits, and it’s these habits that should make all the difference for your next session.
- Sessioning the trail – practice makes perfect
- Best mountain bike helmets for trail riding
- Best cheap mountain bike upgrades
The idea is simple: you visit a trail section that you’re familiar with and find comfortable to ride. You session this section, but this time get used to over-exaggerating the position and techniques involved.
For example, when cornering, accentuate from your regular position on the bike. It may look a bit silly at first, but this will train your muscle memory, and so when you next fire yourself into a technical section the right technique will feel almost second nature.
