How to jump a mountainbike

How to - with B Pugh

It’s a subject that has as many opinions on how to do correctly as there are laid up in hospital after coming up short. The consequences of getting a jump wrong are pretty major but then so too would hitting a rock section without the skills to see you through. Having said that there’s an element of people overthinking jumping, but this could be because of the hugely conflicting opinions in a skill that’s a difficult art to describe and to teach.

The bottom line is in fact anyone can in fact hit a jump, it’s all about confidence and not letting the jump take over you. Nine year old Billy Pugh talks through the essential mindset of getting your wheels off the ground with the help of his sister Izzy.
