    Hey guys,

    here's a little practice video of me trying to pedal kick a gap that was just a bit over wheelbase lenght. I'd just like to get some advice from you guys.


    I made it in quicktime so you guys can use the slider to analyse my technique.

    Enjoy and thanks a million, I put some good mellow muzak in the background...

    you're looking pretty good. just keep at it really. also, try and drop that front end down a little more. now, this may sound funny-but really give it your all. i notice a lot of the time when i ride, i don't put in 100% effort. it's just subconcious-save some energy. give it your all, drop your front end, and you'll make it.
    also-keep pluggin away at back wheel balance. it looked like you were decently comfortable on back wheel, but keep trying it. you want to be REALLY comfortable on back wheel (that will come with time mainly though)
    so yea-drop your front end and give it 110% and you'll make it.

    yeah give it your all....but also, get closer to the edge on the first pallet.

    hell...you would have had it on the second try, but your brake slipped. is your rim ground?

    those be my suggestions
