ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this episode, Griff explains why learning track stands is so helpful for riding tighter and steeper uphill switchbacks.

Track stands are sometimes considered just a bike trials-type balance maneuver, most often used when waiting the light to change and you want to show off. However, they’re actually a foundational mountain biking skill, appropriate for riders to learn who are at an intermediate-level or above.  Tight slow-speed turns become easier once you learn to track stand, as do the the more advanced skills of hopping and rocking.

We want to hear from you! If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the next episode, contact us at ben@mountainbikeradio.com.
