http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com Hard enduro riders are awesome! And cross training enduro is the application of trials-based skills to dirt riding, and it s got solid backing from the world s top riders. This dirt bike channel also had lots of wheelies, reviews, philosophy, and crazy dirt bike skills. Like almost every top extreme enduro rider, Graham Jarvis, Ruben Chadwick and Tim Coleman came into the sport from an expert level trials background. Great for amazing enduro skills! You want to learn how to ride dirt bikes with our free enduro training videos? Our Cross Training Enduro is a mix of trials and dirt riding skills and techniques. Graham Jarvis says "Going fast is the easy bit. It’s going slowly that will help you develop control. Simple riding exercises which are actually difficult to perform can give you a lot of control". Colton Haaker would agree.Losing traction is a cardinal sin in trials riding and riders go to extreme lengths to ensure their tires don t slip. Enduro training tips are based on techniques from Tim Coleman, Chris Birch, Graham Jarvis, Colton Haaker, Ruben Chadwick - these hard enduro riders are amazing. So get into it and learn how to ride enduro bikes - our vids range from basics for the beginner dirt rider to advanced hard enduro racing and epic dirt bike tricks. Enduro clutch and throttle control technique videos? Subscribe to our Cross Training Enduro dirt bike channel for endurocross training and amazing enduro skills. A key is the use of body positioning and weighting - choose when to exert pressure on the pegs and when to de-weight or lift the bike up during epic dirt bike tricks. Most trials techniques involve exact use of the clutch e.g. feathering the clutch for traction control up hills... dropping the clutch to launch the bike into the air as Colton Haaker and Graham Jarvis can do on extreme enduro racing bikes and trials bikes. Maintaining traction is a critical skill highlighted in our dirt bike videos. Learn how to ride a motorbike with tips from who has applied his trials riding to his techniques. It s good for epic dirt bike tricks too and you ll see why hard enduro riders are amazing. Become a subscriber to this dirt bike channel, Cross Training Enduro, for crazy dirt bike skills and extreme enduro training tips vids with techniques from Graham Jarvis and Tim Coleman on traction, wheelies, pivot turns, clutch control, and other critical skills for learning how to ride a dirt bike videos for beginners or enduro racers. Cross Training Enduro Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJAvmhgP0h1AEKY8vTEJPJg Cross Training Enduro Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cross.training.enduro.skills/?ref=ts Cross Training Enduro website: http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com The growth of extreme enduro, endurocross and hard enduro events leads to cross training enduro - trials skills changed to dirt riding on enduro bikes. Almost all the best extreme riders are previously trials champions. Wheel spin and slides look great but in most cases mean you losing control of the bike to some extent. Balance in your dirt bike riding also means you can spend more time standing on the footpegs in tough terrain instead of sitting - so you will have far more control. Cross training enduro has a strong focus on being able to balance on your dirt bike, even at a stand still - this is a handy skill when you have minimal run up to your next obstacle and learning how to ride a dirt bike. Getting into trials riding is great to learn crazy dirt bike skills. The top extreme enduro riders will only lose traction deliberately for certain techniques, such as locking up the rear brake to line themselves up into a tight turn. Cross training enduro means you will almost always be standing on the pegs and learning how to use your body weight and positioning to maximum effect for epic dirt bike tricks - hard enduro riders are amazing! The cross training enduro vids on our dirt bike channel apply the same skills to enduro bikes - you ll be amazed at the difference it makes in terms of traction and advanced techniques such as jumping up vertical rock faces ... and wheelies! lays a foundation for enduro skills for guys like Jonny Walker and Ruben Chadwick. Are you a beginner dirt rider? Interested in hard enduro riding, endurocross training or wheelies? Keen on learning crazy dirt bike skills? Watch top trials riders like Graham Jarvis, Colton Haaker or Tim Coleman. Hard enduro riders are amazing - from a standing start they can flip their bikes in mid air through 180 degrees... no dirt bike fails for these guys so get into our enduro training videos.

http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com Many riders are fine with their stock even if it s a heavy clutch, but in some cases a light clutch can be very cool - if you are doing a lot of slow technical riding with lots of clutch slipping, or you are an older rider with weak fingers. Here are five ways to get a lighter clutch. The clutch is just used for taking off and changing gears, right? We got the hang of that when learning to ride, but many of us don t move on from there. Clutch work is one of the main reasons why so many of the top extreme enduro riders like Graham Jarvis are former trials riders. The cheapest mod is $1 worth of washers with your stock clutch springs. Trials riders learn to use the clutch almost constantly for many of the advanced techniques, and these translate across to dirt riding, at both slow and fast speeds. "But I m going to wear out my clutch!" was my response to all of this clutch slipping, but one, clutch plates are far tougher and more durable than you think, and two, they don t cost much anyway and are easy to replace. However many of us rarely ride like that so it can pay to dabble with reducing the spring strength if you have a heavy clutch. I would estimate the clutch as being around 20% lighter with 2mm worth of washers. At around US$280 the Clake One light clutch stores energy when you release the clutch in order to make pulling it in much easier. Expensive? Shit yes but if you regard this as a long term investment to swap from bike to bike then it is a great option and what I ve been using for several years now. You can adjust it to make the clutch up to 75% lighter. And it doesn t use leverage to do this, so you still have the same engagement and disengagement points as your stock clutch. Try a master cylinder with a larger diameter. A typical case here is the Beta RR350 Race model came out with a larger master cylinder compared to all the other models, and this US$60 part can reduce your clutch pull by about 10%. A third lighter clutch option is if your bike has six clutch springs, try removing two of them... a popular mod for KTMs. And of course check for clutch slipping under full load and high revs. Please note though, I ve never tried this o can t guarantee you might not run into issues. But searching all the forums I haven t seen any negative reports from this mod. Option five for a lighter clutch? The Midwest lever uses extra leverage to make your clutch around 30% lighter. This means you do have to pull your lever further in to full disengage the clutch - some guys like this as it gives you extra control over the clutch - a small number of riders don t like this. I ve been experimenting with the Midwest lever and the extra springs with excellent results so far. The Midwest lever is around US$80. See our review video for more information. Remember to check to see if there s any slipping when you drop the clutch or accelerate hard. When they design their clutches, manufacturers have to make dirt bike clutch springs strong enough to prevent clutch slipping at full power in higher gears. Back to basics - you should always one finger on the clutch. If you have a cable clutch, consider getting a hydraulic conversion kit such as the one available with the Clake One Light Clutch. You only want one finger on the clutch and the rest hanging on to those bars. Find a slight uphill and ride in a straight line as slow and smoothly as possible - a great way to work on your balance and clutch control at the same time. Come to brief stops as well - it will become automatic to disengage the clutch and this will eventually mean less stalling in tough terrain. Try the basic exercises again, but holding the throttle steady and purely using the clutch to stop and go. Dropping the clutch is important for liftin the front wheel quickly and easily, but remember to cover that rear brake, something one of our gumby riders still hasn t mastered. The second option? Lighter clutch springs or even removing some if you have a heavy clutch. Compare your stock clutch springs with those from a smaller bike like the KTM 200EXC or even 125 enduro bikes. If the dimensions are correct but the springs are softer, try two of these, and even four if you don t get any clutch slipping at full revs. A cheap mod as you can get a full set of clutch springs for as little as $20. And finally option six, the Rolls Royce treatment.

http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com http://tractionerag.com Chuck Harder is one of Traction eRag s prize muppets, and has a real eye for detail when it comes to his mechanical work. Real Canadian man alert: If you have any doubts about your masculinity then do not watch this video. It contains a prime slice of Canadian manhood that was judged too masculine even for the mighty Canadian Mounties. Chuck Harder can barely walk with his well filled pants and avoids sexual stimulation as he usually passes out from lack of blood to the brain. There is a man of steel in charge of protecting the multinational corporation that is Traction eRag, defending this evil empire from the forces of good on his Honda ATC90. Watch this review. A hard man needs a hard machine so Chuck has modified his Honda. Just make sure if you are riding the Canadian wilderness this summer that you steer clear of Traction eRag headquarters. Especially if you are on a two stroke. Check out this Honda ATC90 review. Chuck Harder is so tough he laughs in the face of danger, and hiccups in the face of broken bones from his ATC90. But he does comply with Traction eRag workplace health and safety standards by occasionally wearing a helmet. But he leaves his hands and feet free for hand to hand combat with invading ninjas or vicious baloney birds when riding the Honda ATC90.

http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com The best radiator guards, skidplate, handguards, crankcase protection, bashplate, disc guards and case saver for your enduro bike? And do you really need all this gear? How much protective gear should you put on your enduro motorbike? What do you think are the essentials? Our dirt riding tips are great for developing your hard enduro skills. If you look at the pro level enduro riders, they often add nothing at all. Not even a carbon fibre exhaust guard. My personal recommendation? I think full-wrap handguards will be a great idea for all average dirt riders after enduro bike protection. We have a video about the pros and cons of different types. Ditto for the bashplate or skidplate. Try our training vids for working on your extreme enduro techniques. I think the next level of protection potentially includes radiator braces, disc guards, and exhaust guard for two strokes, and a linkage guard. The rest? Just optional in my opinion. A speedo protector? If your motorbike is regularly upside down you should probably get dirt bike protection. Case saver? Need hard enduro training? Work through our video lists. If you maintain your chain properly you should have minimal risk with breaking your crankcase. Chain guide? As an experiment, I kept my brand new Sherco 300SE completely standard. I wanted to see how long it took to mangle it. More on that later. First. Why do the pro enduro riders use so little protection (except for condoms with all their groupies)? Did you know most of the best hard enduro riders are actually aliens and freaks? Some enduro models have fairly weak chain guides, if your chain regularly comes off in rocky terrain a heavy duty chain guide could be worthwhile for enduro bike protection. Hard enduro techniques are covered in our training vids. Into enduro and dirt bikes? Check out our dirt bike videos. Extreme enduro training vids are our focus. Frame guards and swingarm protectors? These are really just preventing scratches so certainly not essential dirt bike protection in my opinion. If you want extreme enduro training see our playlists of enduro skills to learn. They rarely crash. Their technique is so good they rarely need exhaust guards or linkage guards. At their skill level, even a set of full-wrap handguards adds enough weight to affect steering. If you are enduro riding get into our enduro training vids. And they add a bit more width to handlebars so they hit trees more. The emphasis is on keeping the motorbike as light as possible. If they do wreck an exhaust pipe they have spares back in the pit. And exhaust guards can hold in too much heat in race conditions. Most of us are dirt muppets. We crash far more often. We slam our skidplates into logs. We ride through rocks with all the grace of a bull in a china shop. So the question is how much motorbike protection do we need? There s no right answer for everyone. Here is a sample of what you can fit your beast. This protective gear can easily weigh 12kg or more. Are you obsessed with keeping your motorbike light? You will probably choose a bit less protection. What about riding style? Do you think your way through tough terrain? The only added protection used regularly by pro riders seems to be a front brake disc protector, and occasionally a rear disc protector. And bigger clutch covers which allow slightly larger oil capacity and a bit more strength. Or do you throw yourself into gnarly conditions and just hope for the best? It had one benefit. It definitely made me think my way through tough terrain. I really focused carefully on log-hopping technique so I didn t wreck the exhaust pipe. My first damage? After three months I dropped the Sherco at a standstill and it broke the clutch perch. $330 to replace. Ouch! I fitted full-wrap handguards the following week. If you never ride in rocky terrain, there is a lot of gear you probably won t need. Are you happy to fix things yourself? Some riders spend a lot of money on heavy guards for two-stroke exhaust pipes. But for half the price, you can buy a repair kit that uses air pressure or water pressure to fix a bent pipe. The same with radiator guards. An alternative is just carry some JB Weld in your toolkit to plug any leaks. And when you get home, straighten your radiator again. Ditto with crankcase protectors. If you carry JB Weld in your toolkit you can usually do a repair job that will get you home again. I remember fixing a busted crankcase and kept using it for another 18 months. So what happened with my experiment and the brand new Sherco? #crosstrainingenduro #enduro #hardenduro #extremeenduro

http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com The Gopro Black 5 review. I wanted to review this from a motorbike angle ages ago but sadly it s taken this long to borrow one. But the Gopro Black 5 model is selling for around $150 than the new 6 so this vid may help you decide if you want to save some money. Okay. While the Gopros have improved significantly with each new model, there were major changes with the Five. From a dirt riding angle. That electronic image stabilisation was long overdue. Check out my old Gopro 4 footage on a track that wasn t even rough. Bleah. Gopro was definitely losing ground to its competitors by dragging its feet, but they finally got there. So well does it work on the Gopro Black 5? Better than I expected. On cheap cameras I ve found electronic image stabilisation can be jerky and look unnatural but the Gopro Black 5 looks almost as good as the famed optical image stabilisation of Sony Action cams. Cross Training Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJAvmhgP0h1AEKY8vTEJPJg Cross Training Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cross.training.enduro.skills/?ref=ts Our enduro vlog series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlur54ugvzNJlUO0y6D10jVOGMLI4Raci Cross Training website: http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com Like to support our vids? http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com/cross-training-support-donations.htm Ditching the waterproof case has made the 5 model lighter, smaller and the buttons a little easier to use. They say it s still waterproof to 10 metres so absolutely no problems for dirt riders. The viewing screen on the Gopro Black 5 rear is awesome. It s so easy to make sure your camera angle is right, and if you are filming by hand you can frame your shots perfectly. It s also a touch screen so you can work your way through the menus a lot faster than the old two button system. The screen does put extra load on the battery but you can set it to turn off after a certain amount of time. In this Gopro Black 5 review we found the voice control allows you start and stop recording, along with a pile of other functions. Useful? Hell yes. But the only problem from a dirt riding angle is once your bike is revving, or there s a fair bit of wind, it rarely works so you are back to using the top button. However if you aren t riding too fast, and pull in the clutch to idle the engine, it often works if you speak loudly enough. A bigger battery can t hurt but you won t always get longer life over the old model, the Gopro Black 5 has so many features that now place an extra drain - electronic image stabilisation, gps, wifi, superview, and the rear screen. But turn all those off you can get close to two hours at 1080p and 30 frames per second. It s not a new feature but I m so glad Gopro retained the Superview. It s a brilliant feature for dirt riders as the top and bottom of the screen increase to include the handlebars, while the left and ride edges are compressed. It chews a bit more battery but makes the video look even more immersive. There are other improvements with the Gopro Black 5 model which you can read about in other reviews, but those are the biggies for motorbike riders. So what s not so hot? Gopro claim the audio is better but I didn t feel it was better than the 4 model using the skeleton rear door, which prevented wind noise very well. The design of the case prevents wind noise at low speed, but by the time you are in fourth gear it kicks in. And while they ve got a setting that reduces wind noise, it also affects the overall quality of the audio too. It s probably not a big point, I m just very fussy about audio quality and I suspect many won t care at all. The touch screen is brilliant, but Gopro may need to tweak the touch screen. It works much of the time, but some strokes can be a bit hit and miss, especially if you keep your gloves on. All my Gopros have occasionally frozen and the only way to get going again was remove the battery and reinsert to reboot the camera, despite firmware updates. I was a bit surprised to find this still continues with the Gopro Black 5 model. Not very often, but it s an annoying little glitch I thought they would have solved years ago. If you re upgrading from a Gopro 4 then your batteries won t fit this model, so sell them off with your old camera. If you like filming at 4k resolution, remember the optical image stabilisation won t work in the Gopro Black 5 review. This doesn t worry me as I never use 4k, but real video buffs may want to go straight to the 6 model. There you have it guys, Gopro are certainly back in the running for best action cam with the Gopro Black 5 model, and I suspect even more so with the 6 model. I ll start running some tests between the Gopro 5 and Sony Action cam and hopefully get back to you soon with a direct comparison.

http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com Two of Australia s best hard enduro riders, Tim Coleman and Ruben Chadwick, are out for a ride on Ruben s practice track. We chat with the guys about their racing, and get to see a lap of Tim Coleman chasing Ruben Chadwick around his new enduro loop. And here is Ruben s new enduro loop. It s completely new to Tim Coleman lets see how he goes. Tim also says he really appreciates his trials background but needs to work on his speed. But when I see them whipping their bikes along this narrow track it s hard to believe that speed is one of their weaknesses. Tim Coleman has also learned some skills from the motocross guys and it looks as though it has paid off. We are coming up to a superslick wet rocky section that apparently is similar to a lot of the European hard enduros. We asked Tim how tough are those overseas events. We asked Tim Coleman about his first ever ride in the Erzberg extreme enduro. Like most of the extreme enduro riders in Europe, Tim and Ruben Chadwick are both using Goldentyre. We asked Ruben what he usually runs on his bike. All the best for the future guys, whether it s Aussie or overseas events. Extreme enduro has taken off internationally the past few years, in part due to the fascination we have with the incredible bike control the top extreme enduro riders have. A common theme that stands out for almost every top extreme enduro rider is they are former expert trials riders, and cut their teeth on extremely challenging terrain and ultra light weight bikes. The past few years Graham Jarvis has been the king of the extreme enduro world, and we ve even started our own religion based on his teachings. We even got to ask his holiness for some riding tips. It s bloody expensive to ship our bikes to Britian for Graham to train them, so instead we opted to learn his riding techniques ourselves. Now you might think this is a particularly stupid thing to do for a bunch of average riders already in their 50s. And you would be right. But we have very small brains so first we bought trials bikes to relearn the fundamentals of bike control at a local trials club, then started applying the same techniques to our dirt bikes. Some research unearthed heaps of useful tips from riders like Graham Jarvis... In fact, most of these guys will say the key to learning to ride fast is first slow down and get your fundamental techniques right. We became addicted to watching extreme enduro vids and found this both inspiring and deflating to watch riders like Jarvis, Walker and Birch doing the impossible so easily.

A tribute to extreme enduro legend GrahamJarvis from the lowly gumbies at http://www.crosstrainingenduro.com after an impressive ride at the 2016 Erzberg Rodeo (Red Bull Hare Scramble) - well done mate! Most of you will know Graham Jarvis is our enduro God. The man is a freak. The man is a legend. Even if his constant stream of emails to us can get annoying sometimes. Yesterday we watched the flawless run from Graham Jarvis to a third victory at the 2016 Erzberg Rodeo, a full thirty minutes ahead of the next rider, an epic achievement in extreme enduro for a guy now in his forties. This is just a short vid to say thanks Graham for being such an inspiration to all enduro riders, but especially us older guys. You show us that is it more about technique and skill than just youthful enthusiasm. You make us want to push our old creaky bones harder and try new things. Even if we only get to 20% of your ability, the huge smiles on our faces when we manage something new are worth all the bruises and aches at the end of the day. Thanks mate!

It starts with footage of His Excellency in action, then rapidly degenerates into the feeble attempts of old gumby riders who should probably stop riding and take up chess or knitting. We recommend watching the first thirty seconds to see His Royal Highness doing his thing, then stop watching before massive disappointment sets in... although the gumby stuff can make for good comedy according to some. We ve said it before and we ll say it again - Sir Jarvis only has to say the word and we ll fly to Thailand for sex change operations on the chance we might have his babies one day.

Apparently it s politically incorrrect to say Christmas in some countries, or you have say merry christbuddhajehovahallahmas which is kind of clumsy and probably won t catch on. Anyway it s time to see how many presents we can get. How much food we can cram into our already overweight bodies. And of course pickle ourselves with as much alcohol we can cram in too.

What other good news is there for the festive season? Around half a million people have died due to the civil war in Syria, with more than one in 10 of the entire population wounded or killed. War crimes or other violations of the “laws of war” were carried out in at least 18 countries. Armed groups committed abuses in at least 35 countries. Almost three-quarters of governments (119 out of 160) arbitrarily restricted freedom of expression. There were crackdowns on press freedom in many countries, with newspapers being forcibly closed and journalists threatened. While we like to complain about our first world democracies, four out of five countries tortured or otherwise ill-treated their citizens. Anyway the good news is most of the time this doesn t involved white skinned people who speak English, so it s not all that important. On the lighter side of things, Aussie rider Tim Coleman is into the festive season. It was hard finding any snow in our sweletering humid summer so he figured soft sand would be the next best thing. I was lucky enough to film and ride with Tim for two days recently and can t wait to show you some of his amazing trick riding. He s already posted some amazing videos, check out his Youtube channel here. At Traction eRag it s Christmas all year around with their free magazine. It seems they are getting into the festive season, especially the ridiculously tall editor, Dallas Shannon, who is still coming to grips with how to ride a dirt bike. As I ve said before, Traction eRag is definitely the best free shitty magazine in the world and the Christmas issue just released reviews the new Honda 450RX.... chats with a bunch of Texans who attended Red Bull s extreme enduro event in Brazil. And also a privateer who has ridden in Dakar multiple times. Subscribe now to receive have this issue dumped into your email inbox like a huge steaming turd. Mmmm mmmmm. What else? You guys know I m thrilled when girls ride dirt bikes. And when they ride them well I get so excited I almost have a heart attack. Recently I chatted with Megan Griffiths from Canada, an avid dirt bike rider who is into motocross, endurocross, trials, you name it. She wants to promote the sport and help others become better riders and has been doing this through adventure videos, tutorials, and motovlogs on her Youtube channel, check it out. It looks as though I ll be getting to film and ride with Megan next year.... if I m allowed back in after all the international incidents I caused last year. Sorry Canada. Have a great festive season guys. Spread the love among your families and friends. Remember those who aren t as fortunate as us. And ride those dirt bikes. Tim Coleman is a sage in the world of trials and enduro, boasting an impressive 15+ years of experience. And he doesn t stop at that.

http://crosstrainingenduro.com http://tractionerag.com How to ride dirt bikes in soft sand? Like to ride dirt bikes using enduro skills and dirt bike techniques - just like the top riders? Supporters asked for a training vid about riding in soft sand, here it is. And even though my total experience with snow comes to 45 seconds, all these principles apply to riding in snow too. First... bike setup. Okay... How to ride dirt bikes in soft sand! If you are riding a lot of soft sand, consider reducing air pressure for tyres to 8psi or even less. So riding in soft sand. The big problem is it s counter intuitive when riding in soft sand. You reach a critical speed and suddenly you are riding on top of the sand. Body position is critical. Move your body weight back even further the softer the sand gets, for how to ride enduro bikes in soft sand. Another counter intuitive part of sand riding is learning to relax, let the bike move around and don t have a death grip on the handlebars. Around 95% of the top extreme enduro riders are former trials riders. So it s not surprising these guys say the key to learning to ride fast is first slow down and get your fundamental techniques right even riding in snow or riding in soft sand. The past few years Graham Jarvis has been the king of the extreme enduro world, and we ve even started our own religion based on his teachings. We even got to ask his holiness on how to make our bikes do the crazy shit his bike does. Cornering can be very tricky in sand. For more info, see our training vid for cornering in soft sand. Braking is very different too. When learning, it s best not to use the brakes at all as there is so much drag in soft sand.

Essentially it s all the same technique and I rode the DR650 in very soft sand without problems. Usually dropping a bike in soft sand won t scratch or damage it. Snow riding? On top of our 45 seconds experience, we ve been told all these principles apply riding in soft sand, but you also need to watch out for obstacles hidden by the snow. It can be inspiring, but also demoralising to see how well the top riders go. We figured if you can t beat them, join them. So past few years, a bunch of us in our 50s thought we would try to learn as much of this shit as possible, before dementia and arthritis slow us down. And along the way we ve been pumping out free dodgy enduro training vids for everyone. And being free they come with a money back guarantee if they make you ride worse... and they probably will. Hence vids like this on riding dirt bikes in soft sand and snow. Riding an adventure bike that weighs north of 200kg through soft sand requires not only the correct technique but an understanding of what you’re trying to achieve with that technique. You should only consider going on a ride that has significant sand sections if you’ve spent some time practising in soft sand riding and have some solid off-road riding experience. So what is cross training? It s just applying trials skills to dirt riding... slowing things down initially we we can be faster, and more importantly, better dirt riders in soft sand riding. A coaching session with Chris Birch was a great start. Arguably the top extreme enduro rider back in 2010 despite coming from New Zealand, Birchy shared many tips that worked their way into the training vids. So get into cross training. Over 50 completely free training vids on sex.... relationships.... biology... and how to set up your bike, protective gear, maintenance, and riding skills from beginner to advanced. And of course riding in snow and soft sand. Check them out on our website, Facebook page or Youtube channel. The ultimate goal in the sand is to maintain momentum. Everything covered after this has the aim of helping you keep the bike light on the sand and stop it sinking in and coming to a standstill or, worse, falling over riding in soft sand. Building and maintaining forward momentum will keep the bike up on top of the sand, much like getting a boat up on a plane. In a perfect world, you go from a firm surface into the sand and you can carry some momentum in. But at some point you will most likely stop in the sand and have to get moving again — this can be tricky when riding in soft sand. #sandriding #ridinginsand #howtoridedirtbikes #crosstrainingenduroskills #howtoride #enduro #tractionerag #crosstrainingenduro
