Steve Jones has been down to the chippy with his cordless-video-phone, this time he pointed it at Santa Cruz Syndicate whip-meister Josh Bryceland.
As we saw talking to Fabien Barel the instinctive nature of achieving flow on a bike is something that is felt rather than taught.
Josh Bryceland has an interesting take on flow and also on speed, or lack of it. From the conversation with Fabien we saw that riding isn’t about isolated events. It’s about joining the dots and riding at a level that makes this achievable. Riding trails and World Cup downhill racing are very different beasts, but they share the same teeth.
In this one taker with Miami Bryce he talks about how speed isn’t acknowledged in the same way when you are in that zone, when everything flows. We all know Josh for his style and ability to pull a whip off just about anything but here it all runs a bit deeper. Who thought he would have an epiphany in the gate of a race run!?
Flow is still a dark art but understanding how different riders find it might just give us lot a helping hand.
Look out for a full interview with Josh in the next issue (135) of Dirt…
