A lot of it is drifting. You will notice they almost steer exclusively with the rear wheel. Plus they make several runs through the same paths that you see before it gets the final cut. My sons started riding at age 6 in MX. They are 17 & 14 now and can right the crap out of anything put in front of them. The key is start at an early age.
