C4 Riders spend the day on the pumptrack/dirt jumps in Brackendale to work on some pumping, jumping, and cornering.
The morning starts out with a quick warm up and straight into some 5 minute motos to simulate the length of a race run.
This training session was a little more laid back and riders could work on what they wanted, whether it be the dirt jumps or the pump track or building. Having fun was mandatory!
Pumptracks are such a vital part of downhill training, for skills as well as fitness. If you aren’t smooth and quick on a pumptrack, you won’t be any good on the race track.
Once you nail something, make it harder. Rail a corner? Come in faster. Never stop improving, never stop pushing. Don’t listen to people who tell you to shoot for the moon when somebody’s already been there.
“Y’all are brothers and sisters. Look out for your brothers. If you see em’ doing something stupid, stop em’, you seem em’ in trouble, help em’ out. Look out for each other. We’re a team, on and off the bikes. I’ll always be here if you need to talk.”-Cory
