Help Needed

Ok enough is enough!!! I can go into a turn at a decent speed and have no problem, but its the below 50mph that I sorta freeze up on, but I go through it ok...

Re: Help Needed

Track school is obviously the best solution but there are other options that helped me:
1. Have a buddy video you thru the turns to check your lines, foot & body position.
2. Before you start your track lap, ask the control riders to monitor you during your track ride & get feedback from them.... helps me a lot.
3. Get all pictures shot by the camera team at the track. It might be $75 or so but well worth it coz it will tell you about your BP & lines.

You might be leaning too early or too much. I tried to use the same body position on track for all turns i.e one hip out, boot over the shoe guard, leg open & pointing into the turn, head where the mirrors supposed to be, basically by the book.... & found that on sharper turns I was over thinking it & committing to early.
Don't worry & keep riding, one day you will just get it!!...sweet.

Re: Help Needed

Thanks, I'll hopefully be able to get to the track next year...

I want honest opinions here, is this that bad?
