    New question here. Pump Track

    Howdy. I am having difficulty with keeping and gaining speed on a pump track. Does anyone have any tips or know any good videos/demos to watch? I googled and found just one that was worth watching on YouTube. Thanks!

    Thanks Verttii - that is the video that I found too - it is an awesome and informative video and I try to apply the concepts but I still keep stalling out.

    ronnyg801 - yup, sure does, but my co-ordination with leg, upper body and grip on the grips aren't working to keep me going

    If the track is not right, it can be difficult. I've seen many that sucked (flat between rollers and such).

    bend your knees to give you momentum both up and down the bumps.. learn into it as though to puh your bike down when you reach the top. when going round corners use your lower body to sort of kick the bike round
