Riding Tips: Learning moves is all about splitting the move down into its component parts. Consider these factors and, if you're watching a video, look at what happens to these parts during the move. Slow motion always helps with this!

  • Head (Most important, where the head goes, the body will follow!)
  • Feet (Useful in spinning tricks, one foot usually leads and kicks round to help rotation, they also help hips rotate)
  • Knees. (They can be tucked up to speed up a rotation or extended out to slow down rotation. Very helpful for getting inverted. Extremely important when learning the Mobes/Slims/KGB's.)
  • Bar position (Tucked in close to body mainly when performing handle-pass tricks to make the handle easier to pass
The greater the pop in a trick the lighter the bar becomes. In handle-pass terms this means a lighter bar pass so put time into developing your pop. (Motor Drive in issue #43, out in January, is devoted to this!) It can be likened to doing a pull up on its own (good pop) or doing a pull up wearing a suit full of weights (bad pop)!
