PRO TIPS FOR NOVICE RIDERS
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.
