Re: Constructive Criticism

Your really don't look bad in those. It does look like your using a bit much lean angle though and I think that stems from your ass being a bit further off the bike than your upper body, so try getting your head down a bit and over to the side to match your rear end. Besides that, it looks really good.

Re: Constructive Criticism

looks like your right handers need some help

left is looking good, just get a bit lower and over with your body. you want more of your upper body on the inside than your lower body. upper body has a lot more weight than the lower half. imagine your upper body a pendulum, and the pivot point at your hips.

but what do you expect, you get to practice left turns 13x more than right's at t-hill

Re: Constructive Criticism

that first picture looks pretty bad ass.
only thing i see that you might want to change is your outside foot. keep your toes on the pegs with your inside foot, and the peg in the middle of your foot on the outside peg. this helps you keep a lot more of your weight on the outside and helps keep your weight stable.

outside of that, ride whoever is most comfortable for you. get use to making changes one thing at a time. if you're trying to change 5 different things at once, it's tough to concentrate on getting all of them right and the track at the same time. keep your ego in check and pay close attention to the control riders and don't be afraid to ask them for help.

Re: Constructive Criticism

getting your knee down doesnt mean you will go faster. It does look good though.
Just enjoy and stay on 2 wheels. Nice helmet

looks like in some of the photos you are holding up your upper body with your arms. You want to lock yourself on the bike so you are using your arms only for steering. Also as said above get your head and butt lined up off the bike. check out photos of John hopkins for an example of a guy who really hangs off.

Re: Constructive Criticism

Looks good - like folks said, relaxed upper body, more weight inside, and lowering your upper body and you should be good to go.

As someone else said, use the instructors as much as possible. They will be able to tell you more than we can from pictures.
