Learning MTB skills

GET FIT & MEAN IT! with World Champion Kate Bramley

One of the single biggest changes that I have made to my MTB skills over the past 12 months is learning how to get into the “attack position”. This position allows you to approach any trail with the purpose of riding it with some flow as opposed to surviving it.
Below is an outline of how to achieve the “attack position”.

  1. Keep weight through the pedals. Think heavy feet, light hands.
  2. Bend your knees. For extra suspension.
  3. Hips back. Bum behind seat to prevent going over handlebars.
  4. Head Up. Look ahead on the trail for obstacles.
