Reading a downhill track

By | November 2, 2016


One of the best things about riding a downhill trackĀ is that it’s very simple to understand; riders take it in turns to see who can get down a track from start to finish the fastest.

The order they appear in on race day is determined by the times from the previous day’s seeding (qualifying) session with the fastest rider setting off last.

During our downhill track walk, we see the lines that suit our riding ability and also find the fastest lines or cut in lines to save time on the track. Usually it takes a lot of on-hand experience to get your lines dialled and make necessary changes when needed.
