    what would you do?

    Well, what you can't see is the approach, which suks too, so you can't get momentum. My problem is staying forward enough to minimize going end over end. i need to stand up on the pegs more. i just went to a 14/49 and i think my front end really wants to stand up now. any tips on this one?

    Just a guess, but I'd try to come up to it with max speed possible (within reason) and try right as I hit the first face, to have a small wheely started, be leaning back, but upon hitting it, center your position and prepare for the next one. In my experience, having speed is the most important of all of these. Unless you are sure your crashing, keep on the throttle. If you start to lose traction, pop the clutch really fast, repeatedly.

    nice! yea, it's hard to get momentum there at the start because of the sandy/rocky approach. i lost traction then stalled out half way through the problem after the first bump. i'll try the clutch pop in the future and MORE THROTTLE!

    smooth bike control

    by Lars450X » Sun Dec 14, 2008 6:31 pm

    Just judging from the rubber on all the smooth rock surfaces, i'm guessing it's a bit steeper than the photo show's and it's probably a type of trail that requires some mobility on the bike as you ride and brake and throttle control are very important, not just blasting, but having a route in mind and working the bike through, not just attempting, using some body movement to get the bike up onto some of the ledges and then maintaining some momentum to get the rear up the slope as well, i'm gonna guess the rocks are smooth and slippery as well. Challenges are always fun, just as long as you conquer the hill. I think this is a place a Rekluse comes in handy as the clutch inputs as you slow and choose your path, could cause an issue for an arm-pumped rider trying to finesse a clutch lever on an uphill technical section, unless experienced the advantage of a rekluse is hard to explain.

    lean back until your rear suspension compresses, lean forward on exit of the first rock.

    Throttle is important but not as important as the clutch!Stay neutral in the hips you can lean your upper body but not to much.Remember SMOOTH clutch you have to keep traction and the bike running.Be careful pulling the front wheel as this can cause the rear wheel to kick up and take traction.On dirt max speed is good but on that I would try slower speeds,if you dont make it your levers and engine cases are not broken.This is how I would try it. Good luck.
