Tips 3: Pre-braking.

Hi Friends,

This is one of my favourite motocross riding tips because it can make slower riders like me look faster!When racing on sandy and soft tracks the braking area into corners will get really rough and whooped out. Instead of trying to brake in the rough area, brake before the bumps and then accelerate over them into the corner.

You can brake more effectively in the smooth part of the entry into the corner and then when other riders are braking in the rough area you can make ground on them by accelerating over the braking bumps. Accelerating also unweights the front wheel making the bumps feel smoother. Try this it is really intresting..

I tried clicking the comment link but it didn't work until I refreshed the page and immediately clicked it. That is how I was able to comment here, maybe a code is blocking or maybe because it was m computer. Anyway, I wanted to say that you have a good point with accelarating over bumps and hitting the brake before the bumps. I should try that someday. My people back home rides motorcycles.
