Cornering Essentials

Diamondback rider and Fluidride Instruction owner Simon Lawton works with Kyle Thomas on foot work. Watch as they explore the finer points of foot dominance by concentrating on staying lively on the pedals.

Remember, form is important at all levels of mountain biking. Even these seasoned veterans point out how they're constantly improving their riding.

Next time you're out riding, spend some time trying these techniques out: you may be surprised at how much more traction you feel.
