Rocking the flats

Watching the Euros and Aussies drift through Earthed 3 and Hypnosis has inspired me to loosen up my style.

I never ride trail on flat pedals, but I had a great time Saturday working the pump and getting loose in the corners. That Enduro — so fun!

Flats force you to anticipate the rocks. Flow and pump, pump and flow.

Not a bad attack position, if I may say so myself. I’m a bit forward in anticipation of this dip, and my feet are angled to drive my weight into the BB. Fancy.

Fun. And different for a slow-down-and-square-it-up kinda guy.

Drifting — not skidding. That Sam Hill guy — I can take him.
