I have always wondered how some guys just seem to be way faster than I am on gravel. I have been riding it for a long time, tried all sorts of "techniques" and although have gotten faster, I still get left behind. So, I thought I'd start this thread and ask the question....how do you tackle gravel? Couple of things I've noticed: Firstly...Phreaky Phil (fast guy) says practice practice practice.....but practice what? Secondly....I noticed from watching bandit riders video of Te Rimu road that he dosen't seem to be using any more "technique" than I would use, rather, places a lot more "trust" in his front tire grip than I appear comfortable using....maybe that's it, trust ya tread? Thirdly....well, I don't have a thirdly except maybe standing or sitting don't seem to bother folks much? Lastly....This thread isn't about speed for the sake of it i.e. straight line speed, anyone can twist a throttle, it's more about getting ideas from folks for better riding technique, cornering at speed on gravel mainly......so anyone got anything to say?
