I want to get into DJ (there are some good places around here) but I have almost no skills. Where would I want to start.
18 years riding exp
more years racing road than I can remember (maybe 8? off an on)
4 years racing velodrome (cat 2)
Some MTB xc type riding every year, maybe a 2-3 month period in the winter for fun
Fall season while track racing would do cyclocross as a "B" and do ok
The last 3 years I have been commuting a few times a week with an occasional MTB or road ride thrown in. I have almost no real fitness anymore but when I watch the guys (kids, when they are 20 years younger than you they suddenly become a "kid") it sure looks like fun.
I have been going over one of the smaller table top type jumps and so far I can take off and land OK - not getting much air or anything, but staying smooth and trying to figure out how to land properly.
What is next?
Things I can do:
Trackstand no handed
Ride teeters/bridges/beams (2x4 for long distances)
2.5 foot table top jump without ending up in the hopital, but not pulling any tricks or anything
Things I can't do but want to (but what do I learn first):
whatever you call it when you lay the bike flat in the air
maybe a bar spin or 2 would be nice
So. . . any help here?
