- Approach: Make sure if you want a successful take off to make sure to stay chilled and relaxed to make a successful flight. So approach the jump with the amount of speed you’ll need. If you don’t know what the speed is by asking a friend to tow you in. Towing it means you follow them to find out the pace. So make sure to look forward, fingers over the brakes usually one is easier. However, using anymore you’ll have less grip on the brakes so your hands could come off the bars. chose the smoothest and straightest line for the line of the takeoff.
- Posture: Stand relaxed and supple on your bike. A successful jump is all about using limbs as natural springs. Allowing to store and release energy. So to make all this happen you have to make sure you stay nice and tall on your bike. For it to be more efficient on the jump. The main tip is always to stay relaxed if not you can tilt on a bike and go to the side and fall off.
- Timing: Pause. push then pop! Wait till you feel when you get on the upslope of the lip then pump into the lip. To get more of an efficient take-off. And then finally pop for the take off depends on what kind of lip. If it’s quite a long lip then you wait a bit till you pop. Because if you pop to early its classed as a pre-jump and depending on the gap it could affect how far you go. If your gonna make it or not. So basically when your front wheel is at the top of the lip then pop so you get all off the movement and then you should be able to fly.
