Sample Lesson (#2 of 5) - Magic Acceleration

You weigh more than your bike, so get yourself up first, THEN bring your bike!
This requires a lot of bike/body movement and timing, so it’s best to first experience this dynamic movement on a smooth uphill slope.
For extensions on slopes, you may need to use your drivetrain or even brakes to prevent rolling backwards, especially while bringing your body position forwards.
Like most techniques, this happens in a range from big bike extensions to just small ones. Understanding the fact that your body needs to get up first is key, it’s amazing what you can drag your rear tire up and over using this unique bike/body manipulation.
