Fundamentals

Fundamentals

The fundamentals are so important but often overlooked, in this course we’ll cover, in depth, the neutral and ready position and our front to back and side to side movement. With these you can start to build up your ability to perform more advanced techniques.

Neutral Position

The Neutral position isn’t hard to master but is very often overlooked. Get it right and the rest of your riding will become much easier!

Ready Position

From our Neutral position, we can crouch down into our ready position. A lower position enabling us more range of motion and stability, for bigger moves and more technical sections on the trail.

Front to Back

Our ability to move from the center of the bike to the front, back and return to the center will enable us to find and keep our balance on both climbs and descents.

Side to Side

Our side to side movement will be used for keeping our balance as well as cornering. Make sure you are comfortable with your side to side move before advancing to more challenging techniques or terrain.
