PRO TIPS FOR NOVICE RID­ERS

Mountain Biking UK - - UPLIFT -

CHECK TYRE PRES­SURES

If you set your pres­sures in the morn­ing, when it’s cold, then come race time in the af­ter­noon, when it’s 10°C warmer, they can be sig­nif­i­cantly di er­ent.

KEEP SHIFT­ING SPEEDY

Slow gear changes make for a slower ride. Make sure the chain shifts down the cas­sette quickly to keep up with your rid­ing.

FIX RUB­BING BRAKES

Rub­bing brakes waste en­ergy and speed. Take some time to set up your brakes cor­rectly, not only for bet­ter per­for­mance but also for bet­ter speed on the trail.
