    NOOB question

    I was watching some race videos where these guys would put their foot down (like motocross) while cornering, not even hard cornering imho. I've also watched skills videos that teach you about proper balance and cornering techniques, and putting your foot down was not mentioned as a good practice

    so the noob question is, is that really smart? i mean it seems like a great way to get your foot broken, ran over, leg gouged, etc.

    As a last resort to put the maximum pressure into a turn or if your sliding out it's okay. I wouldn't recommend doing it all the time. It works for a place to pivot yourself Again if your drifting into a turn or your rear wheel brakes loose so fast that you need to regain your line a foot down helps sometimes. It's easier to do on flats then clipless.

    Awesome!

    Watched the first 15 or so minutes of the first video before my ride, then went out and tried it! I finally had the confidence to loosen up and properly stand in my pedals on the downhill. It was great, no confidence braking! I felt balanced and confident, and now can keep going with it and get better!

    First time I have stood in my pedals, btw. I usually just loosen myself in the seat with one pedal up, one down, and stand on the one leg down.

    Yes thanks! I watched the cornering video and a few others before I rode last weekend and I could tell a dramatic difference in my ride!

    He made those drops look so easy, I think I'll go try a 4' drop onto a 45 degree slope now.
    It seems weird that I would have loved doing that on my motorcycle, but I am scared s***less to try it on a mtb.

    Thanks. I'll definitely have to watch these. I'm sure there are a lot of fundamentals that it's good to start practicing right off the bat before you develop bad habits.

    I think beginners should start by modulating their speed on steep descents by using maybe 30/70 braking until they are comfortable with carrying more speed through rough terrain. They might lock up the rear wheel here and there, but they'll be able to recover from it.
    I have to agree with this. My first 2 crashes were endos on a downhill because I didn't have my weight back far enough. Nothing like whip-lash to make you remember body position.

    Great video on how to take drops. I understand the technique, but don't think I will ever have courage to pull some of that off.

    So are you supposed to lean forward into corners as well as dropping the bike into the turn? I noticed that moto racers are way up on their seat when they take a turn. they also lift their leg up so it makes a 90. Is this also true for mountain biking?
