  • Don’t get on the gas too early 

    The acceleration phase does not solely refer to increasing speed, a rider can maintain or decrease speed depending on the next action. Linking hazards is extremely important, especially when travelling from one hazard straight into the next. Putting the power back on too early is a sure way to upset the bike and your feeling of being in control. Running wide or faster into a hazard certainly gets the adrenaline pumping around the body but you have to deal with the poor input before you can proceed. This has a detrimental impact on your speed.
