Enter the Turn
Entering a corner at speed: Looking through, getting low, shifting to the outside foot, and starting to lean the bike.
Flying off a Drop
While this rock is rollable, Mr. Lopes has decided to generate extra pop and land somewhere special.
1. Absorb the first roller. Let the front wheel float.
2. Pump-manual violently with extra upper-body pull.
3. Fly to a sweet landing.
Lay Your Bike Flat
Uncork this baby next time you jump through a turn with way too much speed.
1. Lean and turn across the face of the jump.
2. Turn your front wheel down.
3. Push your bike down.
4. Straighten your bars for landing.
5. Land front wheel first. Nice.
