Unlike snow, fresh dirt doesn’t fall from the sky. It’s fun to skid, but skids drag dirt off trails - which may anger the trail gods. Yes some trails (machine built flow) are designed to withstand some sliding around, but many trails aren't.
What other options do you have beyond skids or powerslides for tight switchbacks?
Learning rotating stoppies and nose pivots will bring powerful solutions to tech trail challenges - and bring stoke to trail builders! My goal? Help riders learn these challenging skills gradually and safely
Learn more about these skills and a rad new course here.
If you can already ride stoppies, let others know what it feels like in the comment section below. Is it worth learning?
