    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.

    Did some homework

    After watching the videos, went out today to put some of it in practice. Great stuff! Lots more confidence. Thanks.

    How To: Manual

    Thanks Hutch for the thread that is very "sticky worthy" for sure. Something I am working on is a manual, or a wheelie as we used to call them. A couple vids that I found that were worth watching on the subject:
