Hey fella's... Well i tried my first real side hop... it was only up onto a curb but, i'm guessing that i did it completely wrong! I peeled a layer of skin from the top of my foot to my knee, you could say i'm cooking bacon. I've seen videos but it never looked as bad as this, hehe. I think where i went wrong was leaning the bike a little to the opposite direction to preload, and i probably didn't even have to preload. Anyway, my question is: When i sidehop from a trackstand should i be trying to get both wheels up at the same time? When i tried it yesterday i did it but lifted the front wheel and tried to place it on the curb before the back wheel and my foot came off the pedal and damaged my leg, it's ugly. Now i'm a little hesitant in trying it again but i wanna do it so freakin bad i'm prepared to peel away some more skin. Ouch!!
