ABOUT THIS EPISODE
In this episode, Griff explains why learning track stands is so helpful for riding tighter and steeper uphill switchbacks.
Track stands are sometimes considered just a bike trials-type balance maneuver, most often used when waiting the light to change and you want to show off. However, they’re actually a foundational mountain biking skill, appropriate for riders to learn who are at an intermediate-level or above. Tight slow-speed turns become easier once you learn to track stand, as do the the more advanced skills of hopping and rocking.
