HOW TO RIDE SAND|Motocross Training Tip

Published by Darron Toy on

in this SOS riding tip we’re
going to give you five tips on how to master sand riding you wanna make sure you
squeeze the bike with your feet and your knees and you are relaxed on your upper
body the bikes constantly moving and wants to
go left it wants to go right and you’re not able to hold on to the bike the
whole time so make sure you control the bike with your feet and your legs and we
will show you in some of our Clips how I’ll do that and then kind of relax your
upper body if the bikes moving around a little bit let it go and make sure you
have it tight on the bottom so it’s not gonna throw you off but don’t freak out
when you go to the left or the right a little bit it’s important to keep your
front end light when you’re coming into a sandy turn a little more rear break
and less front break and then just drag the brake you can see that wheelie into
the braking bumps I keep the bike tight with my legs and I don’t shift
down before I get to the turn you don’t want to shift down too early keep the
bike in a higher gear so the suspension can work you see my riding position on the
bike my chest is forward my elbows are up I’m on top of the bike but my hips go
backwards I flex my ankles my hips are further
back on the bike putting pressure on my rear end so the bikes sticking to the ground and
gets traction but I’m on the front of the bike controlling the front end
steering the bike going where I want to go and that’s really important you want
to control the bike like I said all of your legs with your hips further back
but your upper body needs to stay in the front of the bike so you don’t lose
control of the bike and then eventually just lose the front end and crash as you
can see this section it’s really rough again I’m riding a higher gear standing
up all the way and always try to put the front end on top of that next wave that
way I can keep the bike on top it’s not really sinking in I don’t have to worry
about going over the bars and I can carry some speed for a really rough
section another really important part about
riding sand is shifting up a gear you you can see it in my clips
my bikes never really revving out really high I shift up I’m mostly ride third
and fourth gear to make sure that the bikes was running free. if I shift down the
engine brake kicks in my suspension offsets and everything gets really nervous and
shaky. a gear up the bikes nice and quiet and it’s just moving through the
bumps it’s tracking I really just focus on my riding and my bike is not dancing
around all over the place when turning into the sand make sure you stand up
long into the corner you see I’m standing all the way into the apex
of the turn and then once I sit down I still sit down in front of the bike and
get on the gas immediately so the front ends not digging in and I can power out of the sand some long rough turns might require you
to stand up all the way as you can see here my riding position on the bike
upper body leaning forward and then I just stand up all the way and keep the
bike balanced and controlling it with my legs how to stand up and a fifth tip
have fun make sure you enjoy the sand sometimes it can get a little bit
frustrating especially when you’re starting out so don’t forget it’s a day
on the beach just enjoy it thank you very much for watching please subscribe
