Practice
Been wanting to make the perfect jumps, corners and whoops? Nothing sets you on the right path to motocross training as much as practice can. In order to really excel on something, you have to do it repeatedly, bringing each practice to a new level.
Additionally, practice lets you get to know your bike better. The more you keep riding, the more you know how your bike reacts to certain situations. And when you know how your bike reacts, you also learn to develop your own techniques to cope with certain challenges.
Don’t be frustrated if you can’t perfect the stunts in a few tries. That’s why it’s called practice after all. You need to devote a thousand hours doing the same thing until you finally get it. Many riders also practice just by driving and outpacing each other on the track, and that on its own, is already great practice.
