    Sharp Turn Handling @ Lake Crabtree

    I'm extremely amp'd on how I handled a sharp turn while going pretty fast at Lake Crabtree and just wanted to share.

    Public Service Announcement:

    Please don't be a skidiot!

    Skidding through a turn is a huge contributor to erosion/ damage. Adjust speed before the turn, then accelerate through it.

    Rant off.

    One mans skid is another mans mark.
    Nice execution on the turn.
    Once in a while we all skid. Just not on purpose.

    Thanks! I had hoped to make the turn without giving up a lot of speed or falling over. Success!

    Everyone is guilty of poor etiquette occasionally but it is probably best to not post about it. lol


    1st RULE: You do not talk about Skid Club.
    2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about Skid Club.

    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    No need to skid that turn, get your breaking done before the turn, and look through the turn.

    As for skidding, it happens, do not make such a big deal about it.
