The double blip Ryan taught us last Nov was new to me. Intimidating & scary, I couldn't wrap my brain around it. Then last Sat, practicing at Hard Rock, I found myself doing it. Albeit on small obstacles, but I was doing it & found it easier than I thought.

excellent, just the kind of thing i don't want to get wrong. generally i've been talking with our B grade riders then double checking with various how to learn trials videos and other resources. except for ryan's stuff they seemed to suggest the front wheel not being rammed into the obstacle but placed on top. i'll get into further and try to get some consensus on it all, and may need to edit and repost the vid.

Yeah, on a log it`s hard to tell. Watch this vid. The first few times it`s a little high because you can cheat on the clutch. Watch where the tire is placed from a standstill.

That's incredible to watch. At first it looks like nothing. Then in slo-mo, you see how he not only shifts his weight back to load the rear suspension, then keeps his body position low as he moves forward to compress the front, then pick up the throttle, drop the clutch, lift the bars, & bring his weight up & forward, all in one fluid motion.

Beautiful.

Amazing thing was, he did that just as good on the bikes of the early 90`s. Then again what do you expect the 9 time champ. (should of been 12 beat by paid outsiders ) That was the form that made him a winner.

There's more than one way to skin a cat Watching Ryan's Trials Training Techniques at the 55 minute mark he hits the obsticle 2/3 of the way up on the uphill and puts the tire on top for downhill.

At the school last summer he was putting the tire on top as can be seen in the beginning of this video

Wow that's amazing! I found myself smiling ear to ear yearning for the day I might be able to hop a rear wheel onto a log in any fashion resembling that! Thanks!

See RY in that video at 0:30 and 1:50 he hopped over those not-small logs without the rear tiring touching them! Impressive would be understating it.

I've been studying his DVD so can't wait to meet the man! Also can't wait for the snow to melt here so I can get back to practicing something other than garage balancing! I just bought my first trials bike in December and what better way to learn the fundamentals than to fly to NC and get taught by the man himself! Oh I'm psyched dude!

And bunny hopping the tractor tire in fourth gear, without touching a tire to it.
