HOW TO BECOME A FASTER MOUNTAIN BIKER


I recently spent a weekend training the CEO and top coaches from TrainerRoad. All three riders started at different levels — and they all improved a lot.

PUMP HOP SMASH BRAAAP!!!


Last weekend I was in NorCal teaching and doing a RipRow™ demo at Trail Head Cyclery. Thursday Lars Thomsen and I talked business, assembled the machines then went for a ride. It was getting late.

KUNG FU MTB TRAINING WITH BANDJRACING

World class XTERRA racers Ben and Jacqui Allen of bandj.racing are in Boulder, CO for training—and that means RipRow and skills classes with me. These elite athletes are amazingly great at learning and implementing new skills. It’s like they should be pro or something!

Fun video too:

We just finished a ride at Heil Valley Ranch near Boulder, CO, and these two were ripping! I asked them how their riding is improving:

MAY THE FORCES BE WITH YOU

I was riding my pump track the other day — deep into a 10-minute non-stop set, and this occurred to me:

When I pump perfectly, the forces are internal (generated within my body and bike). When I make a mistake, the forces are external (coming from the trail). This got the wheels turning, so to speak.

ADVICE FOR A BAD BACK

Our friend Chris is having back issues.

I think he should see a professional … and he should insist on a top 1% performer.

“MY RIPROW™ PRACTICE IS MAKING THESE MOVES SO EASY.”

Tait Rees, 40something husband and father, has been working the RipRow™ and skills classes all spring — and he is on a shred mission.

Tait is an expert mountain biker and an A-class (the highest class) motorcycle enduro racer. 

“I’ve never ridden this well,” he says. “This is a whole new level.”
