Never look at the rut!( i mean dont ignore the huge boulder and root sticking up before the rut but just dont look at the rut) It is the human way to go exactly where you look. So many times when im in that gray area when im about to crash, I usually see that stump or tree or rock and say " aw man i dont want to hit that" and thats always exactly where i land. Its cus I looked, since then i just look ahead.
The same will happen to u if you see that rut. Easy on the throttle when your trying to go around it, because many times if you spin, u go into the rut. If by chance you get into that rut, either try to hop the bike out if going slow, or keep going using your body to guide the bike, YOU WILL NOT OUTSTEER THE RUT!
