Simple looking corners that give you loads of trouble
You drop down from the right of the picture, around the tree and out of the left of the picture. If I tip-toed around – fine. Repeatedly trying to carry more pace and lifting over the roots, I hooked-up and/or slid out on the camber, narrowly avoid dropping into the pit on the left. Ahhhhhh!!!!!Posted 8 years ago
Approach the turn far over to the left (the right looking at the pic) then turn in as close to the tree as poss. Backing it in may be slightly smother then a sharp turn. Unweight over the first root then push the front down and out the other side on the right hand side of the trail. That's how I read it sat here in my chair any hoo. If wet then potter around it like an old lady.Posted 8 years ago
Even when sliding the rear into a corner ? That's the foot I will be putting down if any. Not questioning your riding skills. I bow to your genius but from enduro and supermoto riding its the inside leg thats always unweighted in my book of how to scrabble around corners.Posted 8 years ago

Nobody is talking about unweighting a foot though. Outside pedal down…Posted 8 years ago
Yeah pedal down not foot. Sorry. I miss understood when Toni said outside foot down I thought down on the ground. My bad. Of course outside pedal down and weighted. unless counter steering with your weight on the out side of the seat and weight the inside peg. oops. motorbiking again.

Outside pedal down…
That's how I read it too.
Not left foot down but left pedal down.

Inside of tree is full of debris. I could clear it, but it not where the trail goes – riding what is there is important point I think.
I'll try it at night – makes things easier. S'good to have things you can't ride well, or at all.
So who else has a tricky corner?Posted 8 years ago
Especially that sss who's shopping trolley wont fit around that tree at all.
Yep it's a 29er and as all the expert* on here will tell you 29er need to book an appointment a week in advance to make even the slightest turn. 😆
* folks who have never ridden a 29er.Posted 8 years ago
