Are you scared of jumping? There’s a good reason for it. But you can learn it! Top free-rider Richard Gasperotti, who took part in the legendary Red Bull Rampage contest four times, will be your teacher.

Watch the video here.

    Hmmm . . . I’m gonna’ learn all about jumps and drops in 54 seconds!

    “Keep your weight over the wheel.”
    Which wheel? (rear I’m assuming, but that may not be obvious to all)

    “Don’b bend your legs” ????
    Especially ?? because the rider in the video immediately bends his legs deeply upon takeoff.

    “Gauge your speed accordingly”
    How? Any tips on how?

    “Ideally, you will land on both wheels”
    Ideally indeed! Aligning the wheels with the angle of the landing is one of the toughest things to learn about drops and jumps. Again, any tips on how? It doesn’t just happen by magic.

    Too funny john…
    I started jumping when I was 48 years old ! No videos or lessons just by watching, starting small and with repetition. As I progressed I found that you can’t jump with cheap bikes and you need the forgiveness of travel and suspension not to break bikes or hurt yourself . Everything else comes with time, repetition, and balls.
    Ps staying in shape helps too 🙂
