Dirt Bike Coaching - Say No to Slow w. Chris Birch
This eighteen-episode coaching series is designed to take dirt bike riders through the core skills such as correct riding position, bike set up, cornering, hills, line selection, plus all the way through to obstacle crossings, jumps, wheelies and hard enduro techniques.
Each lesson is set in a way that allows you to see in detail the techniques broken down visually as well as described verbally by Chris. You will not only be told what to do, but why, when and how.
A good suspension setup makes you a safer, more efficient and a faster rider. This discussion with Scott Brooker from MotoSR runs through basic suspension setup tips and common mistakes people make with their suspension setup.
We run through the techniques for flat corners where you are searching for traction and supported corners like ruts and berms. Learning the correct techniques for seated cornering and the differences in the techniques.
Getting these basics of obstacle crossings dialed will make your log/rock hopping etc a lot easier and make learning the techniques in episode 9 easier and safer. This is the homework you need to do before launching into the log hopping.
Logs, rocks, banks whatever the obstacle. You will learn the slap, the single blip, the double blip, and the splat or lifter techniques that will help you deal with different obstacles you come across on the trail.
Who doesn't like hill climbs? You will learn three different body positions for the hill climbs that will give you more efficiency and more traction. You will learn about how to attack the hills and how to shut it down safely if things go wrong.
Hard enduro must haves. We run through the basic wheel hops to move the front wheel around. The 180 pivots to turn around in tight spaces and the hill side pivots that let you work your way up hillsides when things get steep.
